Our workforce continues to become more diverse, representing individuals from many backgrounds and experiences. We are able to best leverage the value of this diversity when we role model inclusive behaviors and foster a workplace climate that encourages all employees to bring their whole best selves to work every day.

For example, the "shock" of the pandemic and "shift" of relocating workers from the office building to a home office is having a potentially disruptive effect on traditional political and power models in the workplace.Given this reality, this workshop will provide participants with insights into:
The learning plan for these topics will be facilitated with scenario-based discussions and directed small group activities. Participants should also come prepared to share two situations they have observed or experienced at work they believe are examples of power plays or politics.
