Today the Israel Hamas or October 7 war is creating deeply divisive complexities on college, university, and K-12 campuses. These situations are explosive and rooted in identity, and they require careful handling from leadership.
Additionally, while conditions vary by state, the anti-DEI movement continues having a very real impact on DEI in healthcare, K-12 schools, and on college and university campuses.
Please join Dr. Damon A. Williams for a special half-day, online institute designed to support individual leaders, work groups, teams, task forces, councils, and committees in developing an action plan/strategy to both negotiate the October 7 war and navigate the anti-DEI movement and its legislative and legal changes.
The institute begins with a briefing on these causes of unsettled ground. We review the anti-DEI movement today, touching on its history, origins, and growth curve. Dr. Williams will then move into anti-DEI legislation and policy in the US, how new policies are impacting educational institutions, and the anti-DEI implications, ideologies, and dynamics playing out globally via war and unrest.
This institute will focus on developing response readiness in the current, intensifying climate of anti-DEI sentiment. We will advocate a proactive strategy and approach to communication, partnership, and community engagement when managing within these shifting political environments and strange new legal realities.
Participants in this accelerator will receive a complete copy of our latest publication, Leading on Unsettled Ground: How Leaders Can De-escalate Israel Hamas Tensions on College and University Campuses.
The 4-hour accelerator format begins with a live, interactive webinar with Q&A for the first 2.5 hours. After a break, we will move to 90 minutes of strategy exchange workshops in breakout rooms.
You can participate in this accelerator series as an individual learner or with teams of 5 or more. Institutional teams will be assigned their own breakout room along with a NIXLA coach/facilitator to support your efforts.
