As the world of work becomes smaller, it becomes more important for all people to be culturally competent and able to communicate and empower people of all backgrounds. This means your role as manager is critical to not just how each person performs, but also the culture of the workplace itself. Having the right tools for crafting belonging, and being an inclusive leader, requires managers to be more self-aware of how they are showing up, and how best to support a diversity of needs for the people they support.If you are a people manager, you are likely already overwhelmed with the amount of responsibility and decisions that you make on a day-to-day basis. As you desire to stay current in conversations about diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, you may be wondering how to level up your allyship beyond the last great book you read.To consistently build stamina as an inclusive leader, you must learn to communicate with a shared inclusive vocabulary and confront your own feelings of imposter syndrome as an advocate for more inclusive workspaces.I created this course for you.

This course references my experience as an inclusive leadership coach, and leadership development facilitator and manager for nearly 2 decades.
