‘Unpack Your Inheritance’ Workshop Teaches Inclusive Leadership Skills


DiversityThe Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives (DI3) has partnered with Inheritance Project to host a special interactive workshop to learn inclusive leadership skills, strengthen the community and offer a transformative process of self-inquiry.

Unpack Your Inheritance” teaches inclusive leadership skills through the lens of inheritance. It is an immersive virtual experience that invites participants to explore, unpack and exchange stories about their inheritance — defined as more than physical items passed from one generation to the next, but the accumulation of unique lived experiences that shape the individual.

This is a special opportunity for Stony Brook University’s community of colleagues, leaders and students to connect on a human level, care for the culture with intention and level up leadership skills at the same time.

In this interactive, multi-sensory workshop, participants will cultivate self-awareness, build trust and develop a greater capacity to connect with those who are different. By becoming aware of our own inheritance and identity, we begin to understand others on a deeper level. Through this guided exploration, participants will become empowered to lead with empathy, bridge divides and collaborate more effectively with diverse groups.

Workshop participants will receive:

  1. Six practical inclusive leadership tools you can start using immediately to help build trust, inclusivity and a culture of belonging with any group
  2. A simple framework to have productive conversations about inclusion and identity at work
  3. A deeper understanding of yourself and how your identity shapes how you lead, think, collaborate and communicate
  4. A unique opportunity to connect with your work community and learn one another’s real stories
  5. Greater confidence to engage in conversations about diversity, inclusion and identity at work

Register online for scheduled faculty and staff sessions. Up to 25 people can register for each session.

Learn more about the workshop at the DI3 website. Please contact Usama M. Shaikh, assistant chief diversity officer, regarding any questions or inquiries.
