Diversity and Inclusion: Walking the Talk - Recording
Format: Recorded Webinar
According to the Pew Research Center, the United States will not have a single racial or ethnic majority by 2055. Increasing diversity will provide opportunities to create large-scale social change for leaders prepared to collaborate across differences. This kind of collaborative problem solving will also require a different set of leadership skills. This session will explore leadership strategies that advance racial equity and inclusion in nonprofit organizations. This includes the ability to see the larger system, foster reflection and more generative conversations, and shift the collective focus from reactive problem-solving to co-creating proactive solutions.
You will have access to the recording for 30 days after enrollment.
