The Program

Leading Inclusive Teams is a six-week pilot program, combining a peer learning community with live, virtual workshops. Gain evidence-based knowledge and practical tools to help you design and lead diverse, equitable, and inclusive (DEI) teams and organizations. Increase your self-awareness of your personal identity in the workplace, gain new skills to identify privilege, implicit bias, and microaggressions in teams, and learn how to take action as an active ally and change advocate. You’ll meet weekly in a small group of five to six peers to reflect on your DEI journey and practice new skills while also participating in full-cohort events. Each team member will serve as a rotating facilitator and will be supported by an executive coach to deepen your learning.

Understanding tools for equity and inclusion has never been more important for leaders, as the business and moral mandates for diversity have never been stronger.”
