Managing a Diverse Workforce is a two-part leadership series that prepares organizational leaders for the changing workforce demographic. Workshop 1 prepares leaders by looking within themselves to learn in a non-judgmental, gracious and affirming environment. Workshop topics will include: terms and definitions on diversity, the four types of racism, bias, prejudice, privilege, micro-aggressions as well as taking private assessments to reveal your personal biases. We will also identify resources for further learning and exploration. Knowledge of the competencies learned in this course benefit organizations by helping their leaders be more aware of self-bias and prejudice to create an organizational culture of appreciation for diversity and inclusion. Workshop 2 is April 4, 2018. Kimberly Harris, M. Ed., has a background in education and social justice activism, and provides training in cultural awareness for higher education institutions, communities, businesses and social service agencies. Kimberly is trained to facilitate conversations about race, class and gender to promote diversity and inclusion at the workplace.
