Being The Manager

Sessions below are packaged as a series to upskill managers to drive Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in their organizations and teams. Orientation to the six pillars –all weaved together through a simulated, digital media focused, case study– support managers to develop a more inclusive culture for their organization. We strongly recommend that participants read and refer to the book, The ABC’s of Diversity: A Manager’s Guide to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion which can be used as a primer and workbook.
