Course Description

This course gives students the theoretical knowledge and practical skills they need to lead effectively in diversity and inclusion work spaces. Students will examine how their own experiences shape their ability to effectively lead across multiple dimensions of difference, including generational, racial, ethnic and gender differences etc. and discuss strategies to develop diversity leadership competency. Students will be asked to examine the long-standing barriers of racism and other forms of oppression in systematic structures and how to create a new systemic vision for leadership. Students will also consider diversity at the organizational and community levels, exploring principals of equal opportunity and inclusive engagement for all employees. It also considers paradigms that limit and promote inclusion and what each individual student, employers, employees and society as a whole can do to promote inclusivity. In particular this course will explore analyses of interpersonal communication and conflict. An emphasis on skills to develop culturally proficient leaders will be explored.
