This session will teach participants how to apply an inclusive lens and best leverage the strengths and aspirations of their team members through effective feedback and coaching.

By focusing on these competencies, supervisors will feel more comfortable in their roles, be able to increase productivity and innovation, and build better relationships with team members.

  • Increase awareness and focus on inclusion through impactful communication practice

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.
