Embracing Our Own Identities as a Prerequisite to Interpersonal Savvy & Cultural Agility in the Workplace

Date: December 8, 2016
Time: 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Host: The Georgia Institute of Technology — Institute Diversity


(Special session welcoming members of select Employee Resource Groups & Networks)

In order to be stellar leaders, we must understand the individuals around us.  Before creating the space to understand others, however, we must first examine and understand granular aspects of ourselves.”

While attention is often focused on how managers might better manage and/or leverage diversity in the workplace, less attention is focused on how employees can increase their cultural agility and dexterity.  Please join the Atlanta Diversity Manager’s Advocacy Group and a variety of Atlanta’s premiere Employee Resource Groups & Networks for a luncheon/dialogue where we will explore:

  • the importance of embracing the breadth of our individual identities
  • the professional cost of “covering” and/or orphaning segments of our identities
  • how subordinate identities often experience “internalized oppression”
  • how “stereotype threat” creates a vicious cycle of diminished performance
  • how feelings that we are flawed, not enough, or unworthy show up differently in men and women and impact the workplace
  • how practicing “shame resilience” can contribute to inclusive excellence in the workplace
