PLEASE NOTE: This meeting is the 4th Thursday.

The ability to effectively navigate human differences is increasingly essential to personal and professional success in the 21st century, yet few individuals develop these critical intra-personal and interpersonal skills.  “Doing diversity” is also key to organizational success and high performance, yet few organizations understand – much less champion -- the real reasons to “do diversity” and their diversity efforts stay stuck in mere compliance or the notion that it’s “good” or “right”.   Come learn the startling real reasons why “doing diversity” is so important, yet so difficult, and come away with one tool for maximizing your personal effectiveness in the modern workplace!

By the end of the session, participants will:
  • Understand the real reasons why diversity is so important to personal and organizational success
  • Understand the reasons why “diversity” can be so difficult to navigate
  • Be familiar with the intra-personal and inter-personal skills necessary to work effectively across differences
  • Gain skill in working with one practical tool for effectively navigating human differences in the workplace
