Leading Organizational Change in a Multicultural World

Leading Organizational Change in a Multicultural World In-Person

What does an organization look like when cultural competence is institutionalized?  What do I do with what I know?  What can my actions look like to create culturally relevant systemic change? This workshop is geared towards participants who are committed to social justice but want to learn strategies that can lead to an infrastructure of sustainable change.  Participants will learn two critical aspects that lead to successful organizational change:

  1. How to strategically plan for a culture of inclusion and respect through equity team work
  2. How to build an organizational culture that becomes increasingly comfortable with the discomfort that having courageous conversations creates.

Finally, participants learn a model for multicultural organizational identity development and explore where their organization can prepare them for successes and potential barriers.

 

Will this Workshop be Recorded? No.
