Workplace Inclusion Network: “Responding to Resistance”
August 10, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm| Various membership levels
SPEAKER: Meriel Martínez (Education and Training Coordinator, Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities) | DESCRIPTION: Issues of diversity and inclusion can often be challenging for individuals and organizations to engage. It is critical to be prepared to respond to colleagues if resistance emerges. This workshop will help participants understand the benefits of engaging those who are resistant by exploring questions and techniques that help to understand the sources of resistance. It will also explore ways to utilize the resistance as feedback for growth and refinement of D&I efforts. Attendees will leave with heightened awareness and opportunities to practice new approaches in communication and conflict resolution.
