    About the course

    Learn to build robust, anti-racist organizations through diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives and corporate diversity trainings. In this two-day program, USC Marshall’s renowned Associate Dean and Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer & Professor of Clinical Business Communication, Sharoni Little, will guide you toward the skills and strategies you need to create, build, and nurture more engaged teams. Deliver success through diversity with an increased range of approaches and perspectives.

    This diversity training focuses on unconscious biases, recognition of dimensions of diversity, promoting behavioral change, redefining leadership, and reinforcing patterns of (dis)engagement. You will examine how deep-rooted human biases impact organizational and social cultures in potentially unintended ways.

    Key takeaways

    Organizational culture, climate, and inclusive excellence:

    • Learn to address the many internal and external barriers to building inclusive and diverse teams.
    • Explore the ways to target the awareness and develop the skills individuals, teams, and organizations need to make conscious decisions to effect impactful change.

    Implicit bias, authentic leadership, talent recruitment, and retention:

    • Prepare to build and nurture diverse, equitable, and inclusive teams that are more collaborative, innovative, and responsive to a changing customer and changing global market.
    • Learn to lead teams that outperform their competition with more dynamic business cultures, achieving more goals, and delivering improved results.
    • Understand why having authority figures endorse diversity initiatives can help appeal to and sway potentially resistant trainees.

    Teaching Method

    This program is run in a small classroom setting that gives you frequent one-on-one access to USC Marshall faculty. You will examine the concept of inclusive climates, specific behaviors, and skills using a mix of case studies and current business articles, in-class exercises, and small group projects. Our faculty will lead you to focus on the key knowledge and skills you need to understand and apply concepts to your organization's business.
