Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging 101: Foundational Concepts
For organizations to attract and retain high-quality employees in a competitive marketplace, they must proactively address issues that include Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB). In this session, participants will explore the importance of self-awareness, intention, and impact when discussing DEIB. Additionally, they will define the DEIB terms and discuss how to bring more professional awareness about these concepts to their teams.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging 101: Unconscious Bias
Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about various social and identity groups, and these biases have an impact on the workplace. In this session, participants will explore the component of Unconscious Bias and identify ways to recognize their own bias. Strategies to decrease bias in the workplace will also be discussed.
Healthy Approaches to Managing Conflict
This session is designed to bring a broader perspective to the concept of conflict and conflict resolution. Using a model that provides various modes of conflict, each participant will be encouraged to consider an actual conflict-based situation during the session to allow the opportunity to explore various approaches to handling the situation.
Leading a Multigenerational Team
Workplace teams are now composed of four generations of people who all work in different ways. In this session, participants will review the attitudes, behaviors, and skills that each generation exhibits. Participants will also identify skills for improving communication, motivation, and engagement among diverse teams. Finally, coaching and managing across different generations will be discussed.
Managing & Motivating Hybrid Teams
Post-pandemic, the world of the workplace has changed. Many work environments provide staff with the flexibility to work virtually (either full- or part-time). This dynamic is new for supervisors to manage, especially if there are also staff who are working onsite. In this session, participants will explore the challenges and opportunities this hybrid workplace provides. They will also review key approaches to effectively manage and motivate staff on hybrid teams.
The Power of Strengthening Team Trust

They will discuss ways to identify when trust has been damaged and/or broken and will review specific strategies for building trust. Participants will also brainstorm how empathy and compassion matter when building trust. The session will conclude with participants having identified specific behaviors to support their own ‘trust-worthiness’ as a leader as well as strategies and approaches to build trust within the team.
