Executive Session – Ubuntu Leadership: Courageous Inclusion through Interdependence
In today’s smaller, flatter and multicultural world, it is imperative that we fully grasp and understand the challenges and opportunities that inclusion and diversity bring. From county to state level, Oregon recognizes the value of preparing and equipping its citizens to become inclusive & culturally competent leaders and capitalize on the opportunities that diversity brings. To embrace and value the diversity our state, country and world have to offer, we must first embrace and value it in ourselves. Looking at our internal challenges like our own attitude and implicit bias as well as external ones like those we hire or associate with. Courageous Inclusion starts with me! Ubuntu Leadership is a comprehensive, fun, and transformational presentation that will help Public Employees engage in Courageous Inclusion through Interdependence. Since great learning is a two way street, the presentation is done in an interactive style to engage participants through dialogues and exercises. Ubuntu Leadership is presented in a safe environment in order to encourage open dialogue and discussion on cultural and interpersonal differences without being judged.
