COVID-19 is turning the world upside down, including how and where we work. The shift to working from home has been drastic and widespread. With this sudden change in where we and our teams work, we must consider how to support our employees to effectively work from home. Approaching this with consideration for equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) can help those who lead and work on teams consider how to support remote work teams during this crisis.

Building upon the Effective Leadership: Equity, Diversity and Inclusiveness in a Time of Crisis series, this webinar will further explore strategies and approaches that bring EDI to remote work teams, focusing on ownership, accountability, productivity, and connection.

The first webinar of this series,Leading Remote Teams with Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Part 1: Communication and Structure is scheduled on May 20, 2020

  • Strategies to create ownership with remote teams;
  • The importance of accountability as a component of inclusive leadership for remote teams;
  • Tactics to support productivity while considering the diversity of your team; and
