Who the Series is for
Managers who recognize how they lead their teams shapes feelings of belonging, inclusion, equity, and how their teams can show up at work.
Our participants are committed to changing their management practices to achieve racial equity and improve inclusion and belonging on their teams. This series will provide tools to do just that.
What this Series is NOT
This series is not a racism 101 series. To get the most out of the series, participants should be familiar with power, privilege, oppression, and the history of race and racism in the United States.
Participants should also be comfortable discussing and examining their own racial and cultural background, power, and privileges.
This series also assumes that those who chose to participate believe that race and social cultural identity plays a role on how people experience work, and that racial bias leads to disparate outcomes for Black, Indigenous, and other staff of color.
Cost of the Series
$2,500 per person
