About the course
Leveraging diversity and inclusiveness to create new opportunities
There is ample evidence to suggest that inclusion adds value to organizations and can spur innovation. Yet, in practice, diverse teams only work if leaders understand how to manage them through inclusive leadership. This program helps leaders to reflect on inclusiveness and understand the principles behind it as well as equip them with the skills and tools to manage diverse teams toward inclusion.
Participants will learn about and develop inclusive leadership practices. Through a mix of lectures, reflection, and experiential learning, participants will gain an increased awareness about topics and potential issues related to diversity and inclusiveness. Participants will leave with an understanding of the biases and obstacles to inclusion and learn what they as leaders can do to create diverse environments.
