The Building University of Iowa Leadership for Diversity initiative is an opportunity for UI faculty and staff to gain strategic knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. By completing a series of workshops, participants will earn a certificate demonstrating their commitment as leaders for diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and classroom.

This session will help participants understand and prepare to have a learning conversation about diversity in the workplace. Topics include an introduction to a three-step process and a roadmap to guide a productive conversation plus an overview of active listening. These skills will be applied to realistic workplace scenarios.    

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Chief Diversity Office in advance at 319-353-2388 or
