Individual Accountability for Equity and Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are increasingly critical constructs central to optimizing organizational functioning. While systemic approaches at the organizational level play a central role in DEI efforts, this work must start at the individual level. In this course, Dr. Nika White explains the importance of individual accountability in creating equitable and inclusive workspaces, regardless of your organizational role. She starts with the basics of this complex topic, breaking down the definitions of diversity, equity, and inclusion—three related but distinct concepts, and explains why they’re so important. She explains how you can equip yourself to accept individual accountability, including how to educate yourself and others, examine your own privilege, and own the impact of your actions. Join Nika in this course to learn more about your personal accountability in your organization’s DEI goals, and how to get more comfortable confronting frequently uncomfortable realities.
