This session is for managers, executives and other business leaders. It is designed to help them understand the complex role of leadership in diversity and inclusion including how they are perceived (what others expect), received (how others react to them), and expectations (how they behave, speak and interact). We will explore different types of leadership bias and how they can undermine their intentions, not only with respect to D&I efforts but their overall leadership effectiveness. We will talk about actions leaders can take to identify then interrupt those biases, as well as communication strategies for talking about D&I that demonstrate an understanding of and commitment to diversity and inclusion. This course can be designed as either 1 or 2 hours.
