We’ve all heard about the benefits of diversity and inclusion. By embracing diverse opinions and backgrounds, we can each become better team leaders, more creative problem solvers and more empathic partners. But the process of getting all those benefits to actually occur isn’t easy! Encountering difference and disagreement is often uncomfortable—even stressful—despite our genuine desire to support an open, welcoming, and inclusive community.
How can we identify the personal skills and practices that allow us to navigate those difficult situations in productive and successful ways?
Find out by participating in a FREE mini-workshop developed by THE SECOND SCIENCE PROJECT (SSP), a groundbreaking collaboration between UCLA, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, and The Second City, presented by BruinX, part of the UCLA Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
Developed by SSP behavioral scientists and improvisational theatre experts, this workshop will guide you through a behavioral science-based improvisational exercise designed to cultivate skill in navigating a central challenge of today’s diverse environments: conflicting views, or disagreement. The free 45-minute mini workshop we are offering can help you and others at UCLA to try out personal practices designed to support inclusivity.
