Leadership Strategies for Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Efforts

December 13, 2018 - December 14, 2018


The landscape of work in the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) space requires a forward-thinking, flexible, and resilient leader – one who is able to balance often competing priorities, respond to current events, and clearly communicate the vision and mission to various stakeholders on campus.

Join Academic Impressions for this one-of-a-kind workshop designed to provide leaders in the DEI world with the tools and skills to spearhead initiatives, create space for rich dialogue, and respond effectively to the daily challenges this work presents. Alongside a cohort of your peers who are also engaged in this meaningful work, we’ll address the following questions:

  • How can I engage in courageous conversations that encourage accountability and garner buy-in with other leaders on campus?
  • How do I uncover and account for unconscious bias, either direct or indirect, and ensure an equitable experience across students, faculty, and staff?
  • What information and data do I need to make the case for putting resources behind DEI efforts, and where can I find it?
  • What is racial battle fatigue, and how can we better support ourselves and our colleagues to bolster the persistence it takes to be successful in this work?
