In the session we will focus on discussions and activities to help improve the working environment for faculty and staff, and the learning environment for students.

Surviving DEIB Work Using Emotional Intelligence

October 30, 2023 | 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM ET

There has been a lot of buzz centered around Emotional Intelligence (EI) in various industries regarding various topics. Diverse workplaces require us to think outside of our cultural boxes and encourage the same skills that emotional intelligence promotes. With diversity, equity, and inclusion work we are dealing with people. We want to humanize it. There's emotion there and if you can't manage your emotions and others, the ability to effectively lead the work could be challenging. In many instances, the underdevelopment of emotional intelligence is a consistent barrier to taking action to advance inclusion and justice. Boosting your emotional intelligence can enhance your workplace relationships as well as assist you through your DEI work. This session will help you make your emotions work for you and not against you.
