Mastering Inclusion in 20 Words or Less:”  by Robert Wilson, Culture Shift Team

The world is changing dramatically and our struggle to respect one another's perspectives is harming the most sacred tenors of our organizations, campuses, and society as a whole. Why is diversity and inclusion so important to our communities? What is holding us back from creating truly inclusive spaces? How do we overcome our own biases? Learn how to truly master inclusion ... in twenty words or less.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

1. Define diversity and inclusion for a new generation of leaders.

2. Disarm the diversity and inclusion de-railers; stereotypes, unconscious bias, and majority privilege.

3. Elevate your learning and workspaces by leveraging the diversity in your community and creating and sustaining an inclusive environment to live and work.
