The Leadership for Diversity Institute teaches participants hands-on, practical skills for building cultural competency, welcoming diversity, and increasing unity and inclusion.

Whether you are a college administrator or faculty; a schoolteacher or parent; a manager who is responsible for supervising diverse employees in government or in the corporate world; a police officer or community activist - this Institute will give you the hands-on skills needed to be an innovative leader. In large group classes, participants learn a replicable set of practical skills; then in small group settings, there is an opportunity to practice the skills with support and encouragement from others.


A: Diversity and Inclusion Skills

These skills include:
• Valuing and welcoming similarities and differences among group members and staff;
• Examining the misinformation that impacts our behavior toward others;
• Understanding the role indentify plays in leadership;
• Identifying the harmful effects of oppression on one’s own group;
• Preventing and interrupting bigoted remarks and behaviors;
• Learning how to be an ally to all groups.

B: How to Integrate NCBI Principles and Practices into Your Leadership - Participants practice how to implement NCBI skills and practices in their own workplace and community settings. Individual coaching is provided in these skills:

• Leading effective meetings that include everyone’s voice;
• Building a team of support for one’s own leadership;
• Structuring effective, respectful conversations about difference; and
• Increasing cultural competency.

C: How to Listen to Concerns Underneath Controversial Issues - Participants will learn skills to move hotly contested issues forward and reframe the debate in a way that builds bridges.

D: How to partner with NCBI to build a local community, campus or organizational affiliate to institutionalize the skills.

NCBI Certificate issued upon completion for 27 hours of Diversity Training.
