Event Overview
Studies show that diverse organizations are more innovative—but what if this was also true in reverse—that by intentionally facilitating a culture of innovation, you can proactively support diversity and foster an inclusive culture. Presenters will explain the core elements of an inclusive culture and identify key challenges IT leaders must overcome. This engaging webinar will showcase three campus initiatives that demonstrate how to go beyond basic diversity training and move you to take on concrete actions that shift your organization toward a culture of inclusion and participation. By providing real-life examples, they will demonstrate how principles and practices of innovation can be used to unlock these challenges and promote equity, access, and inclusion on any campus.

Learning Objectives:
 
- identify core elements of an inclusive culture that overlap with innovation best practices
 - learn about key challenges to diversity, equity and inclusion on campus—hiring, retention, activation of expertise, and career advancement
 - understand three campus initiatives for proactive change and reflect how they model inclusive behavior
 - commit to one action they will take to actively promote diversity and innovation in their own organization
