Description

In this module, we will explore the personal, interpersonal, organizational, and cultural dimensions of being an effective leader capable of leveraging diversity at multiple levels. How do we define diversity? How have our unique perspectives shaped our journeys? How do we experience bias and difference in our own lives and careers? How do those biases and experiences shape our interactions as change agents and leaders? What practices and programs can help leaders build diverse teams and organizations? How can we, in leadership roles, recognize and advance diversity and inclusion in the world around us? Through readings, discussion, and dialogues with visiting practitioners, students will grapple with these key issues and learn best practices for leading in ways that build and empower diverse teams and organizations.
