Please join us on August 15, 2019 when Dr. Phillip Walker presents a four hour intensive workshop that leverages the power of stories in opening up dialogue and new insights into diversity and inclusion.

 

WORKSHOP SUMMARY

Simply put, in the 21st century, leaders and members will increasingly find themselves in heterogeneous contexts within institutions and communities. As a result, diversity and inclusion stories surround us. Everywhere we turn, there is a story vying for our attention. D & I is one of the biggest challenges facing organizations today. Through a model of stories, participants will better understand the underlying principles and dynamics behind the notion that it’s simply good business to be responsive to diverse customers and staff; it leads to better outcomes.

This workshop is constructed to challenge what we think and know, help us discover what we don’t know, and support raising the bar for others and ourselves. Stories will allow for multiple points of views by eliciting D & I experiences and knowledge, listening to each other and ourselves in deeper ways, and providing a canvas for reflection and learning.

Participants will have opportunities to better understand diverse perspectives and interpretations. Less time will be spent broadcasting signals with more energy focused on tuning in to all the frequencies of participants. This will naturally involve smaller bandwidth, less information, and more impact.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Shift from unconscious bias to conscious inclusion
  • Describe key concepts of diversity, inclusion and bias as they apply to today's workforce through personal stories
