A diverse participant mix is essential to the Academy’s success. Our program is for all leaders looking to significantly boost their strategic diversity leadership skills, REGARDLESS OF LEADERSHIP ROLE.
This means that the Academy is not just for Chief Diversity Officers, or CDOs in training. You do not have to be a diversity and inclusion expert or specialist to attend.
For any institution to build a dynamic diversity and inclusion capability, the campus community as a whole must rise to the occasion. Lasting change requires more than the involvement of a Chief Diversity Officer and one or two individual diversity champions. For this reason, our approach is designed to strengthen the ecosystem of leadership on college and university campuses. We focus on enhancing leaders across multiple roles, to boost their strategic diversity leadership abilities.
The Academy is designed for all those who wish to make real and meaningful change in their lives, organizations, and communities. We encourage applications from chief diversity officers, legal counsel, presidents, deans, diversity committee chairs and members, diversity and multicultural affairs officers, department chairs, staff of business affairs, enrollment management, academic affairs, student affairs, marketing and communications, and faculty members across academic institutions.
