Webinar: Creating a Workplace Climate that Welcomes Diverse Perspectives
Thursday, April 22 | 2:30-3:30 pm CST | Register Here 
Many organizations have found the goal of a truly inclusive workplace difficult to realize. One reason is that we’ve lost sight of an important axis of diversity: diversity of perspectives—political, ideological, and otherwise. We often recognize that a climate with open communication and where a range of perspectives are welcomed is also one where cooperation, productivity, and innovation will thrive; however, getting there has remained elusive. This new climate doesn’t come from a toolkit or a checklist of to-do items: It comes from a new way of thinking. Join Associate Dean Brooke Elliott and associate professor of sociology, Illana Redstone as they talk about how to bring it to life.
