Businesses with inclusive cultures inspire greater product innovation and higher employee engagement and retention. They are also twice as likely to meet or exceed their financial goals. As diversity expert and VP of Inclusion Strategy at Netflix, Verna Myers, notes: “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.”

In this track, you will explore the science of belonging, the psychology of unconscious bias and the impact of inclusion in the workplace. You will learn how to identify and address microaggressions on your team and lead sensitive conversations with empathy and precision. Together, we will develop and implement key behaviors of inclusion that will enhance your capacity to communicate effectively, build authentic relationships, bridge across differences and foster greater levels of understanding. 

This four-class track is perfect for leaders who are committed to growing a more inclusive team culture where employees feel that they belong and can thrive.
