    Part of ISPI SoCal's Self-As-Instrument Series

    Session Description:

    Organization Development practitioners often speak about honing self-as-instrument as a key factor in recognizing the effects of a consultants implicit bias on their client.

This program is open to full-time Organization Development practitioners and Human Resource Executives. It is a deep dive into facilitating racial dialog. Participants should plan to attend all sessions in the series as each meeting builds on the content of the last. Study is required between meetings.

    While this program has limited registration, a waiting list is enabled. Adding additional sessions is under consideration.
