Overview

Diversity and Inclusion

Considering the plurality of the world we live in, campus leaders must recognize the importance and value of increasing diversity within the higher ed workforce. Unconscious (or implicit) bias can unintentionally impede the progress of the institution and derail the career development of diverse employees. The good news is that there are ways to offset and disrupt implicit biases on a personal and social level, a procedural and systems level, and eventually on a structural level.

Join this discussion to gain insight on implicit biases and better understand how to combat your own biases, as well as navigate the biases of others. Learn how to make the business case for diversity and why it is critical to take purposeful action toward change at your institution. You will also hear some ways to create an inclusive culture by making authentic changes in your daily interactions.
