Space and Grace in the Workplace
This workshop is for leaders of departments, divisions, or teams and for anyone who is striving to make their workplace more respectful for all.
Navigating Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the workplace can be challenging – especially if you have limited knowledge and exposure to DEI concepts. When you or a colleague make honest mistakes in what you say or do that can be perceived as inequitable or exclusive, colleagues can give you the benefit of the doubt while still taking the opportunity to educate you. Educating in the moment is one way for you and others to build your DEI skills. In this workshop, you will learn what it means to provide Space and Grace in the workplace as a tool to expand DEI.
Participants will learn:
- Actions that leaders and coworkers can take to provide space and grace
- Strategies to approach DEI issues in a non-shameful way
- How to create guidelines that allow for mistakes and respectful corrections.
