You are invited on a profound adventure. 

This Leadership Lab series is designed to be an active learning experience where participants discover and grow together.

We envision this as a time to explore ways that proven concepts, spiritual principles, and future possibilities can be integrated to lead CSLDallas, our workplaces, and the world, toward a shared vision.

What is a Leadership Lab? 

The Merriam-Webster definition of “laboratory” is: “a place equipped for experimental study in a science or for testing and analysis … a place providing an opportunity for experimentation, observation, or practice in a field of study.

This Leadership Lab is designed to be a series that provides an opportunity for learning more and practicing the skills and behaviors that lead to more effective inclusion in our workplaces and spiritual communities.

Just like in a scientific lab, each Leadership Lab will focus on one theme or be designed to practice skills related to a particular aspect of inclusion.

Why are we focusing on Facing Racism? 

For this Leadership Lab, the focus is on encouraging and preparing participants to have a positive impact in a multi-racial, multi-ethnic community, workplace, and nation. We have chosen to focus specifically on race, rather than all aspects of diversity because for many people, race is the most difficult topic or the issue they are least experienced dealing with in a direct and proactive manner.

We believe the understanding and skill gained by doing a deep dive into this aspect of diversity can, and should, be applied to other diversity-related categories.

What can you expect in these six modules: 

  • Authentic conversations
  • Self-reflection and awareness
  • Information sharing
  • Facilitated discussion
  • Structured activities
  • Tools and resources
  • Role-playing and practice
  • Self-directed learning activities
  • Additional resources for further exploration

How will we measure success?

  • Participants can point out, speak to, and interrupt unconscious racial bias
  • Use spiritual principles to explain the commitment to inclusion
  • Can “stay in the arena” in conversations about inclusion
  • Participants can name the condition and move into a spiritual principle
  • This lab contributes to the measurable increase in inclusion
    within workplaces and communities within 2-3 years.
  • Within 3 months after completion of the Lab, CSLDallas volunteer teams implemented an action plan to increase a sense of belonging and ensure consistent demonstration of being radically inclusive.
Facilitated by: Dr Tracy Brown, Briana Ebmeier, Dana Jones, and Dr Petra Weldes
