Communication Strategies for Leading with Diversity, Inclusion, and "Allyship"

Managers constantly make decisions on hiring, work allocation, feedback, performance reviews, and promotions that may impact their team members and candidates differently based on their race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and cultural background, among other identity traits. However, research shows that diverse teams are more productive and successful than their homogenous counterparts. Thus, managers are faced with creating an inclusive environment so all members can thrive equally in a virtual or in-person work environment. In this course, you will learn the neuroscience of unconscious biases, so you can create a culture of inclusion that supports everyone’s careers equally. This course will cover how to recognize and combat unconscious biases in important oral and written communication during hiring, work allocation, performance reviews, and promotions. You also will learn how to lead inclusive meetings, hold conversations on race and gender, avoid microaggressions, and become an ally in the workplace. By the end of the course, you will have the tools to develop a diverse and high-performing team.
