Inclusion, Diversity, Managing Bias and Allyship Curriculum

Creating Cultures of Belonging

Practicing inclusion means practicing the

behaviors that communicates "You Belong Here." 

Now more than ever we live, work, play and learn with people who look, think, and have different beliefs than we do.  Diversity is increasing with every generation and our ability to embrace and communicate effectively, across differences, is a skill, and can be learned.  People leaders are on the front line.  Yes, inclusion is everyone’s responsibility, but people leaders carry a greater weight. Research shows an employee’s direct supervisor, is the greatest contributor to an employee’s sense of belonging or exclusion.

Creating Cultures of Belonging

The Creating Cultures of Belonging curriculum is a series of five 3.5 hour workshops delivered in a brain (and body) friendly framework. The courses are spaced every three weeks for maximum practice and integration between classes.

Innerleadership

Curriculum Pre-requisite

The work of inclusion begins with you. Hence, Creating Cultures of Belonging (CCOB) begin with Innerleadership. Defined as the ability to observe your thoughts and act with agency, supported by your values and an inner knowing that you will be alright no matter what.

This course is designed to empower you and help equip you to deal with inner resistance, stress, and the anxiety practicing inclusion, managing bias and learning to be an anti-racist are prone to evoke. Resilience begins within. The design is collaborative, experiential, and skill based. It includes researched based assessments, practice, feedback and individual and group reflection. The learner-centric workshops engage the group before, during, and after the course.

Learning organizations exist when people engage in continuous learning. We all have a comfort zone, panic zone and a learning zone, which is located between the extremes of comfort and panic. Innerleadership equips participants with tools and strategies to stay in their learning zone.

Managing Bias

Course Goals

​Bias, both conscious and unconscious impacts behavior and decision making. Managing Bias focuses on practicing strategies to recognize and address bias. It does not seek to convince participants that they are bias instead, experientially participants experience their own bias. Learning to manage biases that create exclusion is a skill one can learn, if willing to examine ones own unconscious biases, and make more of the unconscious conscious.  Inclusive organizations, where people feel included and united around the achievement of shared business goals are simply more profitable. When people feel valued they add value.
