Learning Objective: Diversity leaders create a brand and image that supports and reflects competence and business value

What does it mean to be a diversity leader? Over the past several years, diversity has been a hot topic. However, as times change and business challenges increase, the term has become a stale reference to check off a list of politically correct requirements. As leaders in diversity, we are challenged to educate, energize, and excite our organization around diversity initiatives.
These initiatives build the foundation of creativity, innovation, and transformative results. Diversity and inclusion leaders are key players on the executive leadership team with the specific responsibility of ensuring that human resources are honored, embraced, and ready to contribute great value. Diversity and inclusion leaders are trusted advisors who fundamentally create strategies that result in corporate cultural transformations to effectively support the mission and vision of the organization. To continue to be successful and safeguard the great work and efforts of those before you, you must create a brand and image that reflects high integrity and strong leadership capacity. This workshop will arm you with the skills you need to change your leadership image and effectively function as a vital part of the leadership vision.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Explore key diversity and inclusion leadership and management skills.
  2. Understand strategies for building the right brand and image.
  3. Examine what it means to transform organizational culture.
  4. Create a plan for excellence in diversity and inclusion leadership.
  5. Explore business challenges that impact diversity and inclusion leaders.
