Calling all Multidisciplinary Team members!

February's Menu: Let's talk diversity and inclusion!
Inclusive leaders have the capability to bridge differences and commonalities across multiple dimensions of diversity. Most of the time when diversity is brought up ethnicity comes to the surface, however there are more dimensions of diversity that we must be aware of. Would you like to learn more about how to engage diverse populations? Are you interested in developing yourself as an inclusive leader? Join us.
Let’s talk diversity and inclusion! In the past two decades the way we talk about diversity and inclusion has shifted and gone through changes. For the last 15 years I have worked with people, organizations and communities wanting to make a difference! I have enjoyed the relationships and the work happening around diversity and inclusion and would love to partner with you. “We cannot change our communities without developing inclusive leaders.” Inclusive leaders have the capability to bridge differences and commonalities across multiple dimensions of diversity. Most of the time when diversity is brought up ethnicity comes to the surface, however there are more dimensions of diversity that we must be aware of. Research shows us that diverse teams led by an inclusive leader will accomplish more than teams where differences are suppressed. Would you like to learn more about how to engage diverse communities? I am here to help you. One of the barriers I have seen when approaching the topics of diversity and inclusion has been creating a place of engagement that encourages collaboration. I call it “creating a space for uncomfortable comfortable conversations” which is creating spaces to engage, be curious and challenge participants to grow.
