    Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Project

    • July 6, 2021 - October 27, 2021
      6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

     

    DEI Project (Tuesdays in July)

    How do we learn to practice Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in our professional and personal lives?

    An earlier ODN/Chicago program prompted us to examine how well we, as OD practitioners or students, are inclusive and equitable in our work.  This led to a July project which meets via Zoom on Tuesday evenings.

    Specifics:

    The group meets on multiple evenings from 6 to 8-ish (Schedule is evolving) .  The cost is $30 per person, regardless of your membership status in ODN/C.  The process is as follows:

    1.  You’ll receive a Zoom link for the meetings on July 6, 13, 20, an d 27.
    2.  Pay your fee through our website registration process, knowing this is not a one-time event but four separate meetings occuring weekly for a month.
    3.  Take (or review) the Intercultural Assessment for self-reflection and follow-up.
    4.  After the group starts meeting, it will select a book for continued discussion.  You will be asked to read the book along with the rest of the group.
    5.  Discussion will include learnings from the self-assessment and establishing personal goals.
    6.  Book discussions should lead to putting our learnings into practice.
    7.  This is a pilot project.  As such, we are developing as we go along.  Thanks for your patience with and contribution to this process.

    Diagnose and Develop Team Health

    Teams are where we get work done, especially if you’re working on something ambitious and innovative. Yet, teamwork is becoming increasingly complex and dynamic as teams become more distributed, diverse, and matrixed. In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore what makes teams effective and how teams can improve how they work together. You’ll walk away with a framework to use as you assess team dynamics and some ideas to put into practice as you support team leaders on their journey to develop team performance.
