On Friday, May 10, and Friday, May 17, join popular instructor Rachelle Rogers-Ard, Ed.D., for Leading Across Difference: Understanding Self, Understanding Leadership.

This workshop-based training experience will focus on disrupting racial bias and anti-blackness; increasing your awareness of institutional, structural and systemic inequity through race; and applying this information to develop your leadership skills in many areas and at all levels. You’ll have an opportunity to examine how your biases can have a huge structural impact while identifying your leadership growth areas through discussions with colleagues.

This training is based on Dr. Rogers-Ard’s Authentic Leadership model, which moves participants from theoretical concepts to context-driven practice; to that end, you will be challenged to implement systemic and leadership change within your professional context as a concrete deliverable. Given the transformative, sensitive and often painful content around racism, this training embeds facilitative social-emotional best practices to create a supportive environment. `

Key takeaways

  • Build a foundational understanding of the historical and social foundations of structural racism and anti-Blackness in America.
  • Increase your leadership skills towards improved relational outcomes with your colleagues and direct reports.
  • Grapple with the question: “Who do I need to become to radically shift my leadership?”
  • Become part of a learning community of UCOP leaders who will be better equipped to transform workplace culture.
