    Webinar: Identity-Conscious Leadership
    Institution: Social Responsibility Speaks
    Author(s): Dr. Suzette Walden Cole, Christina Parle, Amanda Florence Garcia Goodenough
    Published: 4/27/2022   
    View Resource
    So often humans want to lean into the "I just see people as people" and "Why don't we just focus on being good people" ideals. Although for many this might be well-intended, it can be harmful. Only focusing on the "person" increases our opportunity to miss the ways in which identity impacts our colleagues, students, and anyone we encounter. This can show up in our programming, leadership, and general work. Join Social Responsibility Speaks in exploring identity-conscious leadership to empower those around us to live authentically and encourage us to show up for each other in real and meaningful ways. This webinar will be available for viewing through May 31, 2022.
