Diversity: A Starting Place
Diversity: A Starting Place, presented by Jess Pettitt
Unlike other online diversity trainings, this course introduces the concepts that you can utilize in your own life immediately. Regardless of each participant’s identities and lived experiences, the concept of how we coexist, interact, and impact one another is imperative to build better teams, better connections, and deeper relationships.
Spend an hour, reflecting on how you fit into the conversation of diversity. Coming to terms with our own unique positive and negative bias as well as how that intersects with our responsibility of perception and sense of entitlement to validation is the foundation of social justice work. Our experiences, choices, and impact, both intentional and unintentional, matter. This is the starting place.
• Recognizing difference and engagement habits
• Personal reflection and seeking out new experiences
• Feeling safe and prepared
• Conscious and Unconscious Bias, both positive and negative
• Recruitment, Retention, and Fit
• The role of Curiosity, Generosity, Authenticity, Vulnerability
