Strong leaders are able to supervise and effectively manage their teams, but Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEI&B) is also critical to leadership development. Leaders that are able to understand difference, create access and opportunities, and help people cultivate a strong sense of belonging within an organization are able to lead their teams more effectively and benefit the organization as a whole. This leadership training combines innovative approaches to leadership development and team building with critical concepts and best practices related to integrating DEI&B into the structure of the organization and the way managers work effectively with their diverse teams.
The Trainer can deliver the training through Zoom or through the organization’s online platform of choice. Participants will engage in interactive activities layered with opportunities for self-reflection and small group dialogue. Handouts, reflection worksheets, and small group discussion guidelines will be included in the provided digital materials. Small group break-out discussions can be used to explore many of the topics. Even in the virtual platform, the presentations are engaging and encourage active audience participation that strengthens the overall learning environment.
As requested by the organization, a pre-test and post-test evaluation can be distributed to all attendees for each portion of the training to properly assess the effectiveness of each portion and to track the organization’s progress on their DEI&B learning objectives. The Trainer will work with the organization to develop the evaluations to ensure that the assessment is tracking the knowledge and skills that best align with their goals.
