This interactive session will outline the benefits of a psychologically safe organization and will offer specific strategies supervisors can use to address common challenges and create and support an internal culture of trust and empathy.

As organizations work to fully embed equity, diversity, and inclusion principles, it is vital to create safe spaces for staff to learn, share, challenge the status quo, and respectfully question others. While psychological safety is a state of feeling supported and accepted and a place where mistakes are treated as opportunities to learn, it isn’t free of accountability or discomfort. This session will help supervisors navigate the complexities of psychological safety so they can create a positive team culture.

Session Learning Objectives

  • Define psychological safety and its importance to equity, diversity, and inclusion
  • How supervisors can create and support a psychologically safe environment
  • Why it is challenging, yet necessary to develop psychological safety

About the Series

Supervisors play a key role in supporting and retaining staff, engaging diverse teams, and fostering a sense of belonging, so it’s important to make sure they are equipped with the right knowledge and tools. Being effective requires specific skills that are often unaddressed and underdeveloped. Because our workplaces are diverse in many ways – race, age, lived experience, and more – this series is grounded in equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) best practices. With EDI as the foundation, these sessions will give supervisors the tools they need to support and engage their team’s varied views, experiences, and capabilities.

This virtual learning series offers a two-hour learning and engagement session each quarter on an EDI topic that is tailored to the unique role of supervisors. Register for single sessions or save by purchasing the entire series.
