Inclusive Leader Series

People bring with them a unique combination of personalities traits and leadership styles which impact not only their legal practices but how they absorb new information and ideas, and incorporate it into their interactions with their colleagues and communities.  

You have been provided with diversity and inclusion training, gained an understanding of unconscious bias, prejudice and discrimination, and see further opportunities and are committed to participate in enhancing inclusion in the workplace. All of this knowledge is vital to becoming an Inclusive Leader. How do you incorporate this information with your own unique traits as a lawyer and from a broader perspective, as a person?
This year's Inclusive Leaders Series will focus on assessing yourself as a leader.

Our distinguished panelists will discuss personality and leadership styles as it relates to equity, diversity and inclusion where you will have the opportunity to learn how to assess your own personality and leadership style.  Take these insights through our remaining sessions where our faculty will examine how you can use specific personality traits and leadership styles to develop and grow as an Inclusive Leader in an authentic way.
