Creating Confluence

Multidisciplinary training for leaders committed to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Creating Confluence

Friday, April 12, 2019

Creating Confluence is “Training Leaders & Leading Trainers” because
leaders constantly need to hone their skills in order to guide others well and
trainers need continuing education to support their communities in making transformative change.

Expand the awareness, knowledge, and skills that are crucial for engaging with diverse constituencies.

Attendees receive certification from Inclusant, access to ongoing training, and CEUs via the Pitt School of Social Work.

Topics include:

Facilitating meaningful and inclusive dialogue

Incorporating equity at all points of planning and activity

Understanding the impact of institutional and individual biases in order to counteract them

Local diversity, equity, and inclusion issues

The Creating Confluence workshop series will train leaders to acquire critical competencies that are crucial for successfully engaging with diverse constituencies.

The curriculum for Creating Confluence is based on the model ASK: Awareness, Skills, Knowledge and includes education about historical barriers to equity in the United States, experiential learning techniques, peer-to-peer education, facilitation best practices, action planning, and problem-solving.

Inclusant has developed this training in order to provide leaders with the tools they need to facilitate meaningful and inclusive dialogue, incorporate equity at all points of activity, and understand the impact of institutional and individual biases in order to counteract them.

Recognizing that most of us do not routinely have opportunities to develop core skills to be effective leaders in diversity, the team behind Creating Confluence has developed a unique workshop format, designed for local leaders to gain immediately applicable knowledge about diversity, equity, and inclusion. In addition to providing attendees with a solid foundation for addressing emerging diversity challenges, the training offers access to facilitators with varied areas of expertise.

The Creating Confluence workshop focuses on Inclusive Leadership + Equity Education
