Leadership Academy: DEI and Volunteer Leadership (PD102442)

Presenter(s): Tatia Granger, PhD
Course Description

If you have not yet watched the Leadership Academy: DEI and Volunteer Leadership webinar, please visit the Leadership Academy site to view.

Volunteer leaders are instrumental in implementing ASHA's strategic focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The wide range of perspectives and backgrounds among members of most committees presents a challenge and opportunity for volunteer leaders. Some feel unsure about how to address issues associated with DEI. However, the multitude of voices, perspectives, and experiences can result in highly effective committees and outcomes when managed well. In this webinar, you will gain valuable insights on specific practices you can use as a volunteer to create an inclusive and safe environment to maximize your members’ engagement.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe DEI as a lever for more productive volunteer engagement and impact
  • Explain practices for creating psychological safety, including recognizing and addressing microaggressions and domains of privilege
  • Explain how to facilitate sensitive discussions based on a growth-focused model (ADVANCE), especially around race
