Course Description

The word “equity” is everywhere these days– but what does it really mean? Why is equity important in the public sector and how does it relate to diversity and inclusion? As a leader, how can you advance equity in your organization and in your community?  This practical workshop will expand your equity consciousness as you move from increasing awareness to taking meaningful action in building a more equitable public sector organization.  

Participants will:

  • Develop a shared understanding of key concepts and definitions, including frameworks to understand equity on multiple levels
  • Explore and evaluate your organization’s DEI efforts 
  • Learn and apply tools to integrate equity into decision making, including policies, programs, practices, and budgets 
  • Identify equity challenges and generate ideas for specific actions within your sphere of influence 

You may be starting your equity journey or already leading organizational change. Wherever you are in the process, build your knowledge, explore useful tools, and practice new skills to promote diversity, inclusion, and equity in your workplace.
