Equity Leaders Unite!
Fri, June 2, 2017, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM PDT
Whether it is called diversity, equity and inclusion, multiculturalism, or anti-racism, the role of leading equity initiatives in the workplace can be challenging. Many organizations have created these positions in the past ten years, and those hired are coming in without any clear direction. Equity leaders often feel isolated and can quickly become frustrated or feel overwhelmed.
However, if we can come together to collaborate and learn from each other’s mistakes and successes, perhaps we can craft an easier path forward. As Paulo Freire said, “We make the road by walking.”
This workshop provides an opportunity for equity leaders to share strategies for organizational change, problem solve some of the challenges they face, and to network. Each participant will be asked to bring an example of a success story, strategy, or tool to share. Everyone will be given time to discuss challenges and hear the best thinking from their colleagues.
Facilitators Caprice Hollins and Ilsa Govan will share a model of multicultural organizational development and strategies for change we’ve identified over the past eight years in our work with hundreds of organizations.
We’d love for you to be part of this community where we share ideas to successfully address equity, inclusion and social justice in organizations. Our goal is for participants to come away with new tools for this important work as well as supportive partnerships they can lean on for many years to come. Won’t you join us?
