January 26, 2022 – 10AM-11AM

Part 1: Getting ready to do the real work: We will focus on why diversity, and in particular, race, matters. We will work with protocols to engage in difficult conversations in ways that both challenge and move the work forward. Our focus is on definitions and understanding the differences between diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.

February 2, 2022 – 10AM-11AM

Part 2: Identity-Conscious Leading: We will examine our learned biases by asking “How does my own personal socialization and learning inform or impact my approach to diversity, equity and inclusion work?” We will explore how biases show up in our work and how to begin dismantling problematic biases that we have held.

February 9, 2022 – 10AM-11AM

Part 3: Leadership and Change Management: This session focuses on decision making and responsibility. We will examine policies, practices, programs, and procedures that contribute to inequity and develop action items for making change.
