INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP

Leading-edge organizations are approaching inclusion from two angles: systems design and leadership development. Both are necessary to create psychologically safe organizations in which the benefits of diverse teams can be realized. But neither is easy. To create systemic change organizations must develop leaders at all levels who understand the complexities of diversity, equity, and inclusion. They must develop leaders who are confident enough in their DEI knowledge to speak out and speak up. And they must develop a culture that supports ongoing learning and change as norms and expectations continue to evolve rapidly. 

Inclusive Leadership is a 4-week, interactive digital learning experience that gives your leaders the knowledge and communication skills they need to lead inclusively. This learning experience combines self-directed online modules and live, facilitator-led virtual sessions in which learners will discuss difficult topics in a safe environment. They will have the opportunity to practice new communication skills and receive feedback from their peers and their facilitator. The Humphrey Group’s cutting-edge digital learning platform allows learners to securely interact with each other and with their facilitator outside of live sessions and provides a private channel for asking questions at any point during the 4 weeks. What this means is each of your leaders will walk away not only educated and inspired, but ready. 

This learning experience is part of the connection stream of leadership communication. You can learn more about our development philosophy here.
