A four-hour accelerated workshop for leaders working towards an equitable and just profession.

In this executive level leadership online workshop, you will work together as a cohort of committed leaders. You will engage in self-reflection, create a roadmap for making DEI a strategic goal in your organization, and identify the core skills leaders need to model.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Define concepts of DEI and impact on animal welfare
  • Examine our DEI Journey Maps and share with others
  • Practice calling in conversations and how to foster open communication 
  • Strategize new ways to incorporate DEI practices throughout your organization 
  • Craft a 90-day action plan for the top three things you can do that would advance DEI in your organization

While we recognize the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion from multiple levels of an organization, this course is specifically designed to support leaders, including executives, C-level staff, directors of municipal animal services, and board members.

  • Workshop takes place online 1pm - 5pm ET on Monday, September 23
  • This Zoom experience will not be recorded.
  • Virtual break rooms will be used for small group activities and reflection.
