About this event

Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging are part of the fabric of an effective and innovative workplace. To be a leader at work is to be an effective ally. According to the LA Times, 83% of US employees implemented a DEIB program in 2021. What is expected of leaders at work has evolved, yet leaders often struggle to understand their place in building a culture of allyship at work.

This 75-minute workshop will provide you with a framework based on narrative and neuroscience that helps you engage more productively as an ally. We all have beliefs, emotions, and experiences that impact our connection to others. When we examine the stories that we tell about ourselves, we can find a powerful space of action to create a thriving culture, at work and beyond. The event is open to all; no preparation is required. You'll leave this workshop with introductory tools and a foundational framework for reflection and engagement.

This session will be facilitated by Lesley Curtis. Lesley holds a Ph.D. from Duke University, where she focused on narrative and social justice movements. Today she combines her passion for allyship and storytelling with her knowledge of meditation and psychology to help leaders and organizations create healing cultures. She works as a leadership coach and consultant through her company, Sagely, where she helps promote DEIB with teams of humanists, certified coaches, and mental health professionals.

We can't wait to see you there! ❤️
