Cultural Differences: Leading Through Anti-Bias Practices

Tuesday, October 05, 10:00 AM - Tuesday, October 05, 2021, 12:00 PM
Tuesday, October 05, 2021, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
VirtualLive/Online
Fee: $45 for MCN members / $65 for nonmembers
Leadership that embeds anti-bias practices creates a workplace culture that authentically welcomes, supports, and values people for all of who they are. This workshop will introduce participants to anti-bias leadership practices. These practices affirm healthy complex identities of staff and constituents, model respect and appreciation of differences, and appropriately respond to bias-based mistreatment as it appears in the workplace in order to create equity and belonging for all.
