SPRING 2023 CURRICULUM
The curriculum will be a hybrid format over 3 weeks in April 2023. Participants should plan to be fully present for the entire program, including attending all sessions in full, completing pre- and post-work assignments and actively engaging with facilitators and the cohort throughout the program.
Shaping and Imagining Workplace Culture
Many of us are eager to try new, innovative, and inclusive practices in our offices, but often encounter hurdles to bring those ideas to life. In the first week, collectively create and experiment with a workplace culture that will offer an aspirational model to bring to your professional spaces. Afterwards, imagine and dream a workplace culture that achieves belonging. What are the tools we might need to make our dreams real?

Grounding Through Mentorship and Coaching
Personal cheerleaders show up all around us – as sponsors, friends, mentors, coaches, and peer groups – and deepen our sense of belonging. Develop a personal board of directors and set expectations to use them effectively. Once your network is thriving, learn how to lean on them to advance your (non)linear career path. And finally, support your team by practicing how to offer guidance in the same ways you are seeking.

Centering Confidence from Within
The frame of mind and care we grant to ourselves strengthens the spaces and people around us. Sometimes we fall into misleading self-talk, comparisons to others, overcompensating or playing down our experience. In the final session, center yourself as an individual and celebrate your contributions to locate your inner authentic flow.
