How space, workforce and strategic planning leaders can keep an eye on diversity, equity and inclusion in the time of COVID-19 - February 23

Includes a Live Event on 02/23/2021 at 4:00 PM (EST)

In these unprecedented times of COVID-19, what role can leaders in strategic planning, space planning, and workforce development have in fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)? As institutional budgets and priorities are shifting, keeping DEI efforts front and center has never been more important. Many institutional leaders have survived the current crises by staying nimble and responsive and are now turning their sights toward getting their institutions back on track in 2021. 

With this pivot toward the future, there is a great risk of backsliding on the gains achieved through focused DEI efforts over the past few decades. With institutional priorities unclear, space, financial, and workforce decisions are being made based on the bottom line, which is understandable, but can also open up the institution to recreating and redoubling biases that have taken years to correct. Through the perspectives of three leaders in space planning, strategic planning, and faculty affairs, respectively, this session will create a dialogue around how institutions can avoid losing ground on the DEI progress they’ve made to date in light of the pandemic’s challenges and aftermath.

Learning Objectives:
 

At the completion of the session, the learner will be able to:

  1. Understand the business case and value of continuing to invest in diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
  2. Integrate DEI into their roles as space, strategic, or HR professionals.
  3. Think creatively about how to foster equity-minded institutions through their operational, administrative and/or finance leadership roles.
