Inclusive Leadership: Strategies and Practical Tools for Diverse Environments

About the Workshop

In this workshop, we will explore contemporary aspects of leadership in the midst of organizational diversity, change and complexity. Diversity, equity and inclusion will be discussed through theory, practical tools and strategies. The social context and psychological processes that result in implicit bias, discrimination and marginalization will be discussed. Participants will become more self-aware and become familiar with ways of becoming more culturally proficient. Contemporary leadership styles will be examined to inspire and shape participants to adopt models for change that remove systemic obstacles and facilitate growth and achievement.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion within organizations and institutions
  • Establish plans to integrate strategies to make the workplace a more inclusive environment
  • Realize the importance of identifying personal views, values, perceptions, implicit and conscious and unconscious biases in order to create more inclusive environments
  • Explain the importance for leaders to be conscious of their own culture and the culture of others
