Equity Begins with Us: Communication Skills for a Thriving Workplace

Online • Live • 1.5 hrs • $125-250


A practical exploration of how communication skills can determine or undermine success of equity efforts and a thriving workplace.

We often focus equity efforts on policies and large-scale changes – whether you’re in the weeds or have your eyes trained on the long-view, it’s easy to forget that communication matters! In partnership with The Center for Restorative Approaches, GLP offers a set of six communication skills that are foundational to a thriving, equitable workplace.

These skills are not new or complicated but are powerful when practiced with intention; they are essential for building genuine relationships across difference. When they become an explicit part of your organization’s culture, they can accelerate efforts to work toward greater equity in your workplace.


What will you learn?

You will use and model 6 timeless communication skills with fellow participants. You will also explore how these skills can show up in the culture of your organization. You will craft your own plan for practicing these skills in the daily context of your life and work.
