Strategic Diversity Action Learning Workshop
For organizations that have well established diversity initiatives and are looking for the next level, DLA offers the Strategic Diversity Action Learning Workshop. This game-changing workshop, originally developed for community leadership development programs, has been successfully applied in the business sector as well.
Organizations identify priorities around people, processes, systems, etc. and bring together high performers to work on cross-functional teams to develop innovative solutions. The teams are engaged in complex scenarios and case studies designed to build their analysis, communication and problem solving skills. These skills are then applied by developing ‘action projects’ that tackle existing challenges utilizing the broadly diverse backgrounds, knowledge and experiences of the teams. Successful community applications of this module are highlighted in the magazine Unite South Carolina. In the business sector, the module has been applied to develop innovative solutions to issues as diverse as generational diversity challenges in one organization, to supply chain integration in another.
