DEI for Managers & Supervisors

Tuesday, September 14, 10:00 AM - Tuesday, September 14, 2021, 12:00 PM

Supervisors and managers play a critical role in reinforcing an organization’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). That role may involve particular challenges and opportunities, including how DEI affects hiring and promotion, performance reviews and improvement plans, managing conflict, addressing bias, engaging employees, and offering professional development, among others. In this interactive workshop, we create the space managers and supervisors need to explore how DEI impacts them, offering practical solutions for continued development as a leader on DEI.
