This is part of the Institute for Management Studies (IMS) Leadership Conversations.

These 60-minute IMS live virtual programs provide a quick dive into key topics that are critical to organizations during a time of disruptive change. Packed with actionable learning strategies, participants will experience an interactive virtual program with an IMS thought leader and receive post-session support through micro-learning lessons and a discussion board.

To thrive in our global economy, diversity and inclusion must be central to your strategy as a leader. Research consistently shows us that inclusive leaders have a competitive advantage when it comes to bringing out the best in their teams. Inclusive teams are more innovative and demonstrate higher levels of team citizenship. There are bottom line benefits for any organization when inclusive leaders are at the helm, creating workplaces where employees are comfortable bringing their full selves to the office.

Participants will learn skills to signal inclusive leadership in their communication and through their decision-making processes. The program will draw on examples from research conducted in multiple industries, and Dr. Lovelace will share stories and observations from her experience working with organizations on this topic since 2006, giving participants practical tools and techniques to become a more inclusive leader.
