New – Why the Workplace is the Perfect Place to Discuss the Undiscussables, Race and Racism

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: June 16, 2022 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CT
Level: Intermediate
Presenters: Margaret Greenberg, The Business of Race, LLC  |  Gina Greenlee, The Business of Race, LLC
Cost: Free
Registration: https://forumworkplaceinclusion.org/webinars/what-is-your-x-why-the-workplace-is-the-perfect-place-to-discuss-the-undiscussables-race-racism/

Talking about race and racism at work historically has been taboo. However, we can’t solve what we don’t talk about. It’s time for a new approach.
For nearly 60 years, workplaces have focused on diversity specific to gender and many historically underrepresented groups. Much of that focus has been on education, training, and awareness building at the individual level. What organizations haven’t devoted equal attention to is RACIAL diversity and how to change the SYSTEM of work—business policies and practices—to create and sustain a racially diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace.
While no single societal sector can disrupt the status quo on its own, innovative businesses and courageous leaders can lead the way. No matter your racial identity, no matter your role or level in your organization, you can do SOMETHING. We don’t profess to know what that “something” is for you but in this session, you will learn two actionable tools to uncover it.

Learning Outcomes
Explore racial diversity through both an asset and business lens
Create a business case for racial diversity that will engage your multiple stakeholder groups
Facilitate strategy sessions using the SOAR (strengths, opportunities, aspirations, + results) framework

Forum PDL – Purpose and Belonging: Two Key Ingredients for an Inclusive Culture

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

Our deep-dive learning opportunity is returning this June.

Unlike traditional workshop sessions, Professional Development Labs (PDLs) are goal-oriented and include personal and professional action and accountability planning for next level leadership.

Join the Unity Lab team to learn how to activate purpose, belonging and inclusion on your teams, and effectively lead diverse teams. In this interactive session, you will understand how activating purpose and belonging in the workplace builds an inclusive and inspiring culture – full of authentic, high trust, diverse relationships across an organization. To create truly inclusive and diverse workplaces, we must first create opportunities for employees to activate their purpose and build empathy and trust with each other.

When: June 23, 2022 11:00 am – 4:00 pm CST
Where: Online/Virtual
