Join us for the kick off the Training Officers Consortium 2020-2021 program year. In this two-part session the TOC Executive Board will reveal the plans for an incredible TOC Program Year and explain some of the revisions we’re making to deepen learning for our registrants.
The second part of our session will be spent with Mike Powell and the Powell Consulting Group as they introduce the timely topic of moving from diversity and inclusion to equity and belonging.
Diversity training in the workplace has evolved over the years. Early training programs whose objectives once focused solely on understanding race relations, equal opportunity and affirmative action, later expanded to include the concepts of diversity, inclusion and most recently equity.
In this webinar session, the Powell Consulting Group will discuss the evolution of diversity training and what it means today for different individuals and groups to feel a sense of belonging. They will discuss the impact that socialization plays on human development and how much of our personal worldview, our approach to relationships, interpersonal transactions and decision-making is embedded in our subconscious mind without us being aware.
Join us as we kick-off our program year with a provocative webinar on Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Belonging and learn how to seamlessly integrate DIEB into all of your training initiatives and programs.
This program covers topics in the Leadership Development track.
Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) covered in this session: Leading Change (External Awareness, Flexibility, Strategic Thinking); Leading People (Conflict Management, Leveraging Diversity, Team Building); and Results Driven (Accountability, Problem Solving).
