More Than A Manager:

Inclusive Management and Leadership

This session will explore the differences between management and leadership and provide participants with the opportunity to reflect on the type of leader they are and want to be. Participants will engage in several activities to practice leadership skills related to building trust, creating a culture of accountability, and managing their own response to challenging situations. Participants will explore organizational practices that support inclusive leadership and engage in individual reflection, which includes building an understanding of how implicit bias impacts one’s own leadership. This full day session will benefit both individuals in formal management roles and those looking to advance their opportunity for leadership.
