JobsPLUS Event: Skills for Inclusive Conversations
This is an online module through LinkedIn Learning that must be completed by October 23. More information for accessing the module will be sent to you after registering. Organizations reap the benefits of diversity—when employees bring their whole, authentic selves to work. Diverse teams are more productive, innovative, and engaged. Authenticity at work includes sharing and speaking up about work and life experiences that may be different based on one’s identity. Developing the skills to conduct meaningful conversations on potentially polarizing topics such as race, religion, and gender is critical for human resources professionals, managers, and team leaders. Mary-Frances Winters offers a multistep process for building the skills necessary to engage in inclusive conversations. Find out how to conduct an exploratory self-assessment to better understand yourself and your team, learn tactics to go from polarization to common ground, and discover practical techniques for discussing difficult topics.Advanced registration for Jobs PLUS events is required here: http://go.niu.edu/jobsplusevents.
