Led by nationally recognized DEI scholar and expert Dr. Damon A. Williams, this session will feature a discussion on Inclusive Excellence, strategic diversity leadership, and allyship. It will also explore other relevant DEI concepts such as microaggressions and unconscious bias and their impacts and roles in learning environments and in the workplace. Dr. Williams will also share simple, yet effective strategies for how leaders can work to confront and address their biases to become stronger allies to diverse and marginalized communities—helping leaders to level-up from bystander to up-stander. By leveraging national data, introspective stories, and the pragmatic voice that can only come from having led DEI-related organizational change efforts at all levels of leadership, this session aims to empower, educate, and inspire hope in all of those that attend.
