Championing an Inclusive and Equitable Work Culture
Attendees will learn practical ways to build more inclusive and welcoming environments for all in policy and practice. Attendees will learn promising practices of how to be diversity, equity and inclusion champions and build full organization buy-in and engagement.
Attendees will unpack the importance of effective developmental and mentoring relationships in the workplace. Supervisors will learn methods of how to connect effectively with their intern, focus the scope of their relationship and help their intern grow.
Knowing how to provide effective feedback and build the professional skills of staff is critical to supervisors and the success of their team. In a workshop hosted by the Brooklyn Bridge Alliance for Youth, supervisors will be introduced to the MHA Labs Skills development framework which provides constructive methods for providing feedback and using conversation as a tool for professional development. Supervisors will be equipped with the resources and knowledge they need to effectively build the skills of their interns and staff.
