We must acknowledge what is happening outside of our organizations, in order to accommodate those inside.
This is a free webinar included in the “Learning to Lead Through a Lens of Equity” series, which is focused on making equity-based leadership skill development available by connecting experts with a growth-willing audience. Previous webinar recordings can be accessed here.
Most people are willing and wanting to have hard conversations at work, but are often blocked by either not having the support they need or being unsure about the best route to those convos. One thing I believe is certain, however, is that we cannot avoid those conversations if we prioritize the people/talent that make our organizations great.
In this conversation Dr. Mica McGriggs demonstrates skills for facilitating hard conversations at work – about Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Inequity. Using specific examples, she will provide you with a path to give you the confidence to lead those conversations in groups or 1:1 settings – but be able to do so in a manner that ensures engagement and respect.
