The unprecedented challenges posed by the pandemic and the heightened awareness around racial injustices have challenged organizations and teams to work together in new ways to create inclusive workplaces where employees feel trusted, valued, and psychologically safe. Always, but especially in times of disruption and uncertainty, it’s important that all employees—regardless of rank or role—practice inclusive leadership to support a culture of trust and predictability, help “anchor” teams, and ensure individuals can thrive.
Catalyst’s “Foundations of Race, Gender, and Equity in the Workplace” learning curriculum empowers leaders, from the frontline to the C-suite, with critical knowledge and skills needed to build more inclusive workplaces, manage diverse teams, and serve diverse clients and customers. The curriculum guides learners as they examine their own assumptions and biases; come to understand key terms and behaviors; and practice skills through engaging activities, insightful case studies, and practical self-assessments to gain a clear understanding of what it means to be an inclusive leader and why it’s essential in today’s global marketplace.
