Description

Join OSU-Cascades business instructor and community social equity advocate Erika McCalpine for a three-day, deep dive into DEI topics that can help you shape a fairer and more equitable workplace environment.

The DEI Intensive is open to business and nonprofit leaders and managers, and community members seeking a greater understanding of social equality.  Each day will examine a critical topic area:

Day 1: UNCONCIOUS BIAS

  • Identify the dimensions of diversity that matter most in organizations and why.
  • Learn to recognize unconscious bias and how it impacts how coworkers perceive, evaluate and react to others.
  • Explore how to identify interventions that can help override judgement and decision-making errors due to biases.

Day 2: FOSTERING AN INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT

  • Examine how inclusion is dependent on how a team interacts and performs, and how a team's relationships create or deny an inclusive environment.
  • Explore ways to foster an inclusive workplace climate, through social connections, openness to learning and decision-making.
  • Understand how leaders can foster greater inclusion in a workplace.
  • Learn the behaviors and skills leaders need to be successful in creating an inclusive climate.

Day 3: ADVANCING DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

  • Examine the difference between diversity and inclusion.
  • Assess stereotypes and prejudices that can influence behavior within a work group.
  • Look at the main influences of inclusion within a workplace: organizational, work group and immediate supervisor.
