Workshop Overview

The ability to form and hold meaningful, inclusive, and diverse associations and relationships is a skill that has increased exponentially in value. While the racial and civil unrest of 2020 strongly highlighted the value of diversified social capital, many people (as well as organizations) realized this part of their skillset was underperforming or worst, nonexistent. In this course Jejuana C. Brown (Certified Diversity Professional) shares how to diversify your social capital portfolio through allyship and by amplifying equity and inclusion in your personal and professional relationships.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn and identify the content and gaps in your social capital portfolio.
2. Identify saboteurs (stereotypes and biases) that hinder your personal and professional relationships.
3. Identify internal and external ways to practice allyship.
4. Create a diversification plan that focuses on equity and inclusion.
