Inclusive leadership is not a destination. It's a journey that requires humility, curiosity and courage. - Thais Compoint
121 Inclusive Leadership
Inclusion happens one thought, one moment, one conversation, one interaction, and one person at a time.
Today’s emphasis on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is not a trend or a short-lived new look at the workforce and leadership. It is a mandate for the 21st century. However, understanding and shifting our mindset is not enough; we also have to figure out what to DO. How do we create a culture of inclusion and make inclusive decisions? How do we interact with our co-workers and the people we supervise and lead? How can we ensure that everyone has access to the opportunities in our organization? The answers to these questions have to become behaviors that can ensure that DEI is actually working in the workplace. This course, “Inclusive Leadership” addresses the third leg of our DEI leadership responsibilities…. The course will focus how to inclusively lead individuals because we are all different, each as unique as our fingerprint.
So, leadership asks: “What do I do differently to ensure DEI on my team and in our organization? “
This course will reinforce the DE mindset and add to leadership information and knowledge, but it will do more: we will focus on developing new tools, new behaviors, things leadership can actually do to create inclusion and equity in a world of individuals and diversity.
