As a leader in any organizational context, your ability to collaborate with a broad cross-section of colleagues is a key driver of individual influence and collective success. Through a highly interactive and engaging process known as intergroup dialogue, this course will provide students with an opportunity to: explore how their own social identities shape their professional choices and leadership style, build capability to have meaningful dialogue and effective collaboration across social, cultural and power differences, and explore the power of alliances and allies when seeking to create an inclusive team/organizational environment. The primary assignments for this course are readings and journaling with class participation being a significant portion of the grade.
