“The Inclusion Habit”

Thursday, September 17 | 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET

Sponsored by 

The world has seen drastic changes in recent months — first a global pandemic that has changed how people engage with one another, and then weeks of protests against the injustices facing underprivileged communities. To address the diversity, equity and inclusion concerns that have been highlighted in these national conversations, higher ed leaders must address their own biases and support inclusive practices on campus.

In this webinar, attendees will learn about the Inclusion Habit, an evidence-based solution designed to help individuals make their behaviors more inclusive by:

  • embracing that inclusion matters
  • understanding biases and their sources
  • dispensing with the negativity associated with unconscious biases
  • practicing thinking more deliberately
  • reprogramming incorrect intuitions about others
  • becoming more empathetic

Dr. Amanda J. Felkey will share how small daily activities can modify behavior and create new habits of understanding, empathy and inclusion. Given how individuals retain information, this habit-building solution has the potential to take us beyond the limits of traditional diversity-and-inclusion programming.
