Practical Ways to Cultivate Inclusion & Build a Better Team

December 1, 2022 @ 1pm ET

Many leaders don’t know what to do differently in their daily leadership actions to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in their college or university. Leaders are looking for ways to foster a culture in which every staff member feels like they matter; in many ways, the first step starts with the leader. Once DEI initiatives become more than a box to check, you achieve collective engagement and positive results.

During this live 60-minute webcast, we will highlight:

  • Ways to activate the talent of each staff member by helping them feel seen and valued.
  • How to create a culture of belonging where team members work together for a common purpose.
  • Actionable steps to improve hiring and advancement decisions from the start.
  • Building exceptional leaders, teams, and cultures that get results.

  • Building confidence and momentum for the unofficial project manager and team members to excel in project work.
  • How to increase “informal authority” to engage teams that do not officially report to you.
  • Processes and frameworks to consistently execute high-value projects on time and with quality.
