Inclusive work environments are those which value and benefit from the diverse perspectives, styles, and experiences that individuals bring to the table. In order to create such environments, it is critical that employees develop different types of skills relating to diversity and difference. The Traffic Light Model presents three key skill sets for creating inclusive work environments: "stopping skills" that address bullying and bias, "slowing down" skills for addressing conflict, and "moving forward" strategies for continual learning about various aspects of diversity and culture. In this session, participants will gain practical tips and strategies for developing these three skill areas. Presented by Marlo Goldstein Hode. We ask that you sign up at least 48 hours in advance. Pre-registration is NOT required to attend, but sessions with less than 10 pre-registered participants will be cancelled. Participants who have pre-registered will receive an e-mail reminder about the session or notification in the case of cancellation. BRING YOUR LUNCH! Sponsored by the Chancellor's Diversity Initiative.
