Event description


The Leadership for Diversity Institute is a powerful diversity, equity, and inclusion training that teaches participants hands-on, practical skills for building cultural competency, welcoming diversity, and increasing unity and inclusion.

Whether you are a college administrator or faculty; a schoolteacher or parent; a manager who is responsible for supervising diverse employees in government or in the corporate world; a police officer or community activist – this Institute will give you the hands-on skills needed to be an innovative leader. In large group classes, participants learn a replicable set of practical skills; then in small group settings, there is an opportunity to practice the skills with support and encouragement from others.


A) How to Integrate a Powerful Set of Diversity Skills into your Leadership

  • Valuing and welcoming similarities and differences among group members and staff
  • Examining the misinformation that impacts our behavior toward others
  • Understanding the role identity plays in leadership
  • Identifying the harmful effects of oppression on one’s own group
  • Preventing and interrupting bigoted remarks and behaviors
  • Learning how to be an ally to all groups.

B) How to Gain Greater Support for your Leadership on Diversity Issues - Participants practice how to implement NCBI skills and practices in their own workplace and community settings. Individual coaching is provided in these skills:

  • Leading effective meetings that include everyone’s voice;
  • Building a team of support for one’s own leadership;
  • How to have difficult conversation, in a respectful way; and
  • Increasing cultural competency.

C) How to Listen to Concerns Underneath Controversial Issues - Participants will learn skills to move hotly contested issues forward and reframe the debate in a way that builds bridges.

D) How to partner with NCBI to build a local community, campus or organizational affiliate to institutionalize the skills.
