Adopting New Leadership Mindsets to Drive DEI
Are you in a mindset that will help you drive DEI throughout the systems of your organization? As a leader, you hold the keys to activating DEI on your team and in your organization as you role model inclusive behaviors for the people who work for you. DEI as an initiative is multifaceted - it's individual and programmatic, organizational and systemic, and you need a mindset that allows you to shift cultures and embedded norms to enhance every operational area. The discipline of systems thinking is an underlying philosophy that is particularly applicable to complex change efforts such as DEI. Systems thinking is more than just a collection of tools and methods - it's a way of thinking on an ecosystem level. In this course, you'll learn to recognize how systems thinking applies to DEI and practices for examining DEI goals. You'll also learn strategies to build organizational culture awareness for DEI, identify how organizational culture is represented in your team and processes, and recognize how to make DEI part of how you do business, including using more gender-neutral language.

Bridging Differences in Cross-cultural Communication
In today's world, business is global. No matter the industry or sector, the chances that you are working with people from another country or culture are high.

In this course, you will learn about two principal dimensions of culture that underlie culturally different ways of communicating and learn vocabulary that will allow you to explain differences in communication styles. You will also explore barriers to communicating effectively across cultures and identify ways to overcome them.
