Learning objectives include:

  1. Clearly stated values to drive leadership
  2. Understanding of personal bias and blindspots
  3. Skills and strategies for equitable management
  4. Identify the link between valuing equity and HR to implement into policies and proceedures

Workshop Description:

As Supervisors and Leaders committed to equity in the workplace, how can we implement and execute what we’ve learned and create the change we want to see and create more effective, accountable, and equitable organizations as we do it?

This training is intended to challenge us to examine our beliefs, attitudes, and practices about the people with whom we have been tasked to lead. It will provide participants with a solid understanding of leading with your values, giving and receiving feedback and how to administer the human resources and operational practices of your organization thru the lense of equity. Upon completion, you will be able to answer the question? “What do I do now?” as well as some practical tools to advance your work.

Participants will leave the workshop with:

  1. A clear link between valuing equity and implementing it into leadership
  2. An understanding of personal bias and blindspots
  3. Skills and strategies for management grounded in power and privliege analysis
  4. Opportunities to infuse equity within your HR practices
  5. Ideas that can be implemented into your organization resulting in an immediate impact
