Courageous Conversations

Spring 2021

Taught By: Sujatha Jesudason

Section: B

CRN: 9285

Credits: 3

Approaches to addressing inclusion and equity in the workplace tend to bifurcate between focusing either on macro/structural/systemic/policy elements in an organization or micro/interpersonal interactions and aggressions. This course is an opportunity to work at the intersection of the macro and micro and practice courageous conversations with co-workers and allies by calling them into partnership to challenge inequities and exclusion together. Students will explore the different ways issues of difference and power manifest in workplaces, activism and projects, work to increase their social and emotional intelligence, resilience and risk assessment skills, and practice “calling into partnership”. In diverse workplaces and social movements, the ability to work productively and collaboratively across differences and through conflict should be a core competency for all leaders. Designed for people who have been historically and structurally privileged and marginalized, this course offers a framework for the courageous conversations needed to skillfully make our workplaces and social movements more inclusive and equitable where everybody feels like they belong.

NOTE: This course meets on a shortened schedule. The course meets on two Saturday sessions (March 6 and April 24) at the beginning/end of the course and Tuesday evenings from March 2 through April 20.
