Engaging the Tension of Diversity (Click to enlarge image) Engaging the Tension of Diversity
It’s normal to experience discomfort when faced with conflicts around diversity; whether the difference is related to gender, race, class, sexuality, politics, or religion. Issues of identity are deeply personal and teams need a framework to actively engage these topics in their workplace. Teams willing to step into the risk of authentic engagement can disrupt the status quo and create an environment that can tolerate discomfort, allowing employees to bring more of themselves to their work.

Why this? Why now?
In times of tension, employees may disengage, choosing avoidance over collaboration. Mastering the skill of engaging during tension is crucial for a healthy workplace culture. An emotionally intelligent DEI foundation equips your team to address challenges in building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture and navigating tension when (not if) it shows up.

What is Artesian Collaborative’s approach to this issue?
Mindfulness is a key tool in combatting disengagement. In Engaging the Tension of Diversity, therapists offer reflective space for individuals to consider their feelings and experiences during discussions. This format fosters the capacity for further exploration post-training and intentional engagement with others to build connections.
