Leading Towards Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Implementing Systemic Change
Organizations in virtually every sector are met with a pointed challenge: to commit to, act on, and increase transparency into their ongoing progress to implement diversity, equity, and inclusion. To create viable, sustainable pathways for achieving a comprehensive DEI agenda, organizations must remove long-held systemic, cultural, and interpersonal barriers at every level. The Leading Towards Diversity, Equity and Inclusion series convenes and connects respected faculty and industry experts across the nonprofit, negotiation, and human capital management sectors for inspiring, solutions-focused conversations on implementing systemic changes that benefit individuals, organizations, and the communities they serve.
This series is brought to you by Columbia University’s Nonprofit Management, Negotiation and Conflict Resolution, and Human Capital Management master’s programs as part of the University’s ongoing commitment to anti-racism.
