The announcement that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the electoral and popular vote for the next US President is, for many, a highly-awaited and anticipated moment. For others, it’s an acute loss.

Our most important work, right now, is to put in motion the practices and programs to create cohesion, build community and help leaders reach across difference.

That said, it’s become dangerous to talk about politics at work even though the political divide now more than ever inhibits positive connection, at work, at home, and in our communities. This divide threatens progress towards more diverse and equitable workplaces.

Now, amidst this divisiveness, is the opportunity for workplaces to double down and equip their leaders on how to bridge the divide. There is no time to waste.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Be clear on why diversity, equity, and inclusion work matters, especially right now
  2. Push your inclusive leadership skills for today’s unique needs
  3. Explore how to narrow divides and speak to divergent groups
