Deep Diversity: Leadership Skills for Workplace Inclusion & Equity workshop
Deep Diversity is a framework that examines 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. Join author/facilitator Shakil Choudhury for this workshop.
To really work through issues of difference and foster greater levels of fairness and inclusion within organizations, it is critical to understand the human mind—its conscious and unconscious dimensions. The workshop will investigate these ideas and link them with Deep Diversity, a practical lens that can be used to enhance understanding of systemic discrimination within organizations.
Enhance the ability to understand and identify inclusion and exclusion dynamics due to various social identities such as race, gender, age, sexual orientation or disability.
Date and Time: Oct 21 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Location: Duke & Carr classrooms, David Strangway Building, UBC Point Grey, Vancouver BC.
Workshop fee: $90 plus tax (price includes a copy of the book).
