This highly interactive workshop offers both a framework and practical tips for leveraging the power of diverse teams, optimizing innovation, and strengthening organizational decision-making. It invites participants to become intentional and strategic about this work. Designed for supervisors who lead diverse teams and faculty members who want to leverage diversity to enhance classroom learning or to strengthen students’ readiness to embrace diversity in community settings. Open to all interested in the topics covered.
