 Diversity as a Strategic Change Process, Anita Rowe & Lee Gardenswartz 

(2 Day Workshop)

Gaining maximum advantage from diversity requires much more than training.  Diversity can best provide a strategic advantage when it is handled as a long-term organizational change process. This workshop will help participants grapple with the seven steps necessary to achieve meaningful culture change, and develop a strategy for creating a culture of inclusion that is suitable and relevant to each participant’s unique organization.

 Participants will have the opportunity to:

·       Apply an approach to getting buy-in at all levels of the organization

·       Learn to develop a productive diversity task force/council

·       Gain keys for designing effective diversity training based on both awareness and skills

·       Develop clear evaluation and measurement techniques and processes

·      Experience designing a change initiative

The workshop is designed for administrators, staff, and faculty working with diverse populations and academic support staff with direct responsibility for addressing diversity issues on campus (i.e. diversity committees) and in the surrounding community.   (Registration includes workshop, materials, continental breakfast, and lunch daily.)
