Overview

The Inclusive Leadership Learning Cohort series is hosted by the GradFUTURES and Access, Diversity, and Inclusion teams of the Graduate School. The series offers several unique sessions with the primary goal of preparing graduate students with inclusive leadership skills as a way to combat systemic racism. Leaders with this skillset can help build and sustain inclusive cultures at every level within our institutions, organizations, and communities. As part of this series, guest speakers will share personal stories, practical strategies, and ways they promote individual and collective action. The sessions are open to all. Graduate students interested in earning the co-curricular certificate will find the requirements and assignments on the Canvas site. We look forward to these important conversations and to learning together!
