Full Webcast Description: "Would you like to feel more confident when leading dialogue that promotes inclusion? Perhaps you're working to ensure your staff reflects the diversity of your institution - or maybe you're witnessing unfair treatment of a colleague because of race, age, or gender. No matter the situation, conversations about these issues can feel tough. With so much to be mindful of, and so much at stake, you may not always feel as comfortable as you could when leading this dialogue around difference. Join us online to gain confidence in leading your next courageous conversation - dialogue that promotes inclusion and understanding of people's differences. You will learn about obstacles to these conversations and how to overcome them so that you can build relationships and engage more effectively with diverse groups inside and outside your institution."
