Skill Level Intermediate
- Many organizations invite employees to bring their whole selves to work. Because they realize that they are more productive, more innovative, and more engaged. With this invitation, employees may bring issues and concerns that are related to important aspects of their identity. Consider an employee who has faced anti-Semitism. Or one who has been impacted by racially incited violence. Or another, who might have relatives who are concerned about evolving immigration regulations. These are just a few examples of issues that might impact an employees ability to do their best work. These conversations can be difficult. Because we have been mostly taught not to talk about such topics as race, religion, or politics. Especially at work. So it stands to reason that we might not have the skills to do so effectively.

This course will highlight the prerequisites and steps for engaging in inclusive conversations and provide some tools to start you on the journey.
