FOSTER DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION IN ALL SPACES
Traditional approaches to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) focus on identifying and remedying problems. While this is necessary for change, it can perpetuate a deficit-based mindset and weaken relationships. Appreciative Inquiry, a successful approach to fostering positive change, expands our focus to identifying, exploring, and amplifying strengths and opportunities in DEI (e.g., people, processes, systems of work, communities, and families).
Learn how to apply Appreciative Inquiry’s tools, processes, and principles into your Intercultural Competence, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ICDEI) practice. Come prepared to collaboratively inquire into what’s working and what’s possible to create the change we want to see in our workplaces, communities and family systems. Together, let’s rise to the call of action.
Co-Creating a More Intercultural, Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive World Using Appreciative Inquiry will support you in taking intercultural competence, diversity, equity and inclusion (ICDEI) actions with AI principles, process and tools. This course is not a diversity, equity and inclusion training, an unconscious bias assessment, nor an anti-racism webinar; however, your trainers will share their expertise in the fields of ICDEI and OD, introduce their theory and change model, and provide valuable resources to strengthen your ICDEI work.
You are encouraged to come with a ICDEI project (big or small, personal or professional) that will deepen your learning through immediate application. Together, we will help you identify the individual and collective strengths within your initiative, develop generative questions to engage in listening and storytelling for positive possibilities, and ensure you have an action plan to co-create a more interculturally competent, diverse, equitable, and inclusive destiny.
As a result of participating in this virtual series you will be able to:
This virtual series consists of synchronous (live sessions hosted through Zoom) and asynchronous (assigned reading and activities outside of class time) learning over the course of 4 weeks.
