Diversity Inclusion Masterclass Series

The purpose of the Masterclass:

  • To create reflective practitioners

  • To grapple with the tricky and controversial issues entangled in the field of diversity and transformation

  • To come to grips with diversity dynamics that enable and/or prohibit change and transformation from taking place

  • To better understanding individual and organisational change initiatives

  • To reflect on the complexities of race, gender, disability and generational diversity as well as formulate adaptive strategies in dealing with the diversity challenges of our age

  • To benchmark and formulate best practice

The first day's programme starts off by contextualising EEDIT practice. The current state of EEDIT best practice is deconstructed within the context of emergent (South African) organisational diversity dynamic. Delegates are then taken on a deep-dive in exploring the architecture needed to  effect individual, team and organisational (systemic) change. The day includes conversations in regards to:

The D&I Masterclass is a two-day workshop that is aligned to enable EE, Diversity and/or Transformation managers to navigate the complexities and challenges that today's diverse environments present. The programmes is designed around hosting several crucial conversations with D&I specialists and industry-related piers. The Masterclass is endorsed by SABPP and delegates will receive an SABPP CPD certificate.

The second day's programme explores specific critical diversity focus areas. Each of these focus areas are presented, the complexities of it are deconstructed, and generative ideas are presented as a means of navigating the challenges it presents.

  • Conversation 1 explores Race relations in South Africa from a post conflict pedagogy. It presents the challenges that our context presents to Race dynamics, but then works towards enabling generative conversations that can lead to alternative ends.  

  • Conversation 2 explores the gender workplace diversity conundrum. It unpacks the state of affairs and then explores ways to re-author our socially constructed gender narratives that we hold in order to create more inclusive workplaces. 

  • Conversation 4: (Dis)ability accommodation & inclusion

  • Conversation 5: Generations in the Workplace: Entry Gen Z

  • Conversation 6: Integration & reflection of what ‘shifted’
