Course Description

Whether you are in a formal leadership role or not, there are times when all of us are called to lead. Leadership does not reside within a single person but instead, is something that each of us can learn to do more inclusively and effectively. Committing to the value of inclusivity on a personal level allows our behaviors and actions to create more inclusive work environments. Inclusive environments are ones where everyone feels safe, valued, and accepted as their authentic selves. Our shared commitment to inclusion benefits us all as inclusive environments are dynamic, innovative, and truly build for the success and well-being of all.
