Diversity Officer Coaching
Coaching helps Diversity Officers maneuver the emerging, complex campus environment for diversity by understanding the: political nature of the work; critical components of relationship-building; importance of developing a vision and strategic plan; and other dimensions of thriving in the area of diversity.
Practicing diversity and inclusiveness on college campuses can be a daunting task particularly if you are a Diversity Officer. Often charged with “solving” issues related to diversity for an entire institution. The work challenges include such things as politics, strategic planning, visioning, and intergroup conflict.
