Leveraging the Roots of Resistance for Inclusive Transformation
March 17, 2021
Not everyone views a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace as positive. Resistance to change is not unusual—it’s part of the landscape. Getting into “good trouble and necessary trouble” in this session involves learning about and engaging resistance to systemic equity—on the part of individuals and organizations.
Some of the issues to explore include fear of the browning of America, loss of white status, power, and privilege, the disruption of social cohesion, conflict between individual and collective worldviews, how people adopt change, and polarity thinking.
Participants will leave with greater empathy, as well as strategies and tactics, for leveraging resistance towards transformative change.
