Viable, robust organizations view diversity and inclusivity as their greatest strengths. They embrace diversity in multiple ways—race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status—and across the organization—board, faculty, staff, and students. Yet achieving equity isn’t easy. It requires changing your organizational culture, moving beyond a business-as-usual approach, and understanding that decision making by nondiverse leaders often means falling short of diversity and inclusion goals.
Join us to explore leadership practices that can help your organization be proactive about diversity and inclusivity and meet the needs of our increasingly diverse society. During this institute, you’ll
- Hear a presentation on issues that contribute to low diversity within organizations
- Explore strategies for increasing diversity and inclusivity
- Learn about resource materials for organizational and personal growth
- Have the opportunity to reflect on and assess your own organizational practices and develop an action plan for implementation back home.
You’ll leave this interactive and engaging institute with materials to continue your ongoing learning for organizational, professional, and personal growth: reading materials, online tools, survey guides, and more.
Note: This institute is designed for executive and board leadership. Participation is limited to 30.
