    About the Program

    Our Introduction to Leadership Development Roundtable (LDR) is not a workshop, it is an experience. An experience designed to encourage you to reflect, refocus and refuel on your leadership journey. Many times, leaders find themselves operating on autopilot in their work towards equity.

    This program is a condensed version of our 10-month program that will provide a meaningful opportunity to explore the breadth and depth potential of your impact. The day includes small group discussions, activities and exploration of leadership and equity concepts. Key topics include:

    • Self-awareness
    • Adaptive Leadership
    • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging (getting to the root)
    • Race Equity (micro and macro responsibility)
    • How “I” and “We” Lead (spheres of influence and building an impact chain)

    Key Themes and Intended Outcomes

    • Understanding and practicing adaptive leadership;
    • Exploring/identifying how you can lead change;
    • Dissecting the importance of race equity and DEIB mindsets; and
    • Forging lasting relationships with fellow leaders.
