Deep Diversity Workshop facilitated by Shakil Choudhury

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion invites you to attend the Deep Diversity workshop, facilitated by Shakil Choudhury on October 11, 2017. During this free, full day workshop you will develop key leadership knowledge and skills to support workplace inclusion and equity.

Creating a functionally diverse and inclusive workplace is crucial for any organization that wants to stay relevant and productive. Understanding how systemic discrimination threatens fairness and workplace morale in both overt and subtle ways is critical to such initiatives. Although developing diversity champions within organizations is a recognized best practice for advancing inclusion strategies, there is less understanding of the leadership competencies required for such a challenging task. 

Deep Diversity is a framework that helps examine how four key factors—bias, tribes, emotions and power—play invisible, yet significant, roles in our dynamics with those who we perceive to be different than us. Through this award winning training facilitated by Shakil Choudhury you will develop key leadership knowledge and skills as outlined in his new book, Deep Diversity: Overcoming Us vs. Them.
