Uncovering: A New Model of Diversity and Inclusion

Description

The Clayman Institute Launches Center for the Advancement of Women’s Leadership with Groundbreaking Presentation on Inclusion and Authentic Leadership - Panel Discussion to Follow

To RSVP for this event click here

Today’s college campuses, workplaces, and community organizations are more diverse than ever, opening up opportunities to greatly enrich our conversations and enhance the innovativeness of our ideas. Yet as more diverse people join our communities, we have not fully benefitted from the richness of their contributions. Many efforts to be inclusive have instead pressured individuals to assimilate into existing cultures and practices, leaving many to feel alienated rather than included.

In a ground-breaking collaboration, Kenji Yoshino, NYU Law Professor, and Christie Smith, National Managing Principal, Deloitte University Leadership Center for Inclusion, join forces to create a new paradigm for inclusion. Starting with the concept of covering, which is the process through which individuals feel pressured to downplay their differences in order to be included the community, Yoshino and Smith will introduce a disruptive way to speak about inclusion - one which moves beyond programs and initiatives to one that helps all individuals find common ground with one another.
