Five two-hour interactive webinars will provide participants with a safe space to:

  • Understand the key practices of inclusive leadership. (ENGAGE OTHERS)
  • Learn the key dimensions of an EDI strategy and obtain a toolkit to support the planning and implementation at the individual, team, and organizational level. (ACHIEVE RESULTS)
  • Understand how to apply an equity lens and   become an effective ally while nurturing coalitions within organizations and with external partners. (DEVELOP COALITIONS)
  • Understand and apply the core principles of facilitating transformative cultural change in Complex Adaptive Systems. (SYSTEMS TRANSFORMATION)

Since EDI is a constantly evolving field of study, the program will provide additional curated resources to support the participant’s ongoing self-development. Experiential learning will be encouraged by providing pre-work before each session to maximize dialogical learning during the face-to-face workshops. Ongoing reflection and application of learning after each session is highly recommended.
