Power Struggles: Radical Leadership Practices for Advancing Equity
The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits is offering “Power Struggles: Radical Leadership Practices for Advancing Equity”:
“As the rightful demands of the workforce are increasing, most leaders do not feel equipped to navigate critical dialogue, let alone take the lead progressing an equity centered culture. Ironically, data illustrates that leaders who can find their way to inclusive leadership foster teams that are more relevant, competitive, and resilient.
Studies show employees are more likely to leave a supervisor, than a job. This is crucial because 46% of new hires leave a company within their first year. As expectations rise for inclusive leadership and equitable workplaces, how can we create spaces where employees want to stay?
This session will go beyond conversation about leadership styles, and explore emotional intelligence, cultural humility, and equity centered imperatives. Come to disrupt harmful white supremacy culture norms, overcome executive leadership tropes, and learn how to lean into your positional power as a tool to advance your workplace culture into the future.
- Discover barriers to inclusive leadership: white supremacy culture, leadership tropes & conflict.
- Reflect on own leadership using critical lenses to adjust intentions, approaches and behavior.
- Understand what workplace safety is, and the ways leaders need to be accountable to advancing it.”
