It's long past time to have critical conversations that lead to positive change. Recent research supports what we know intuitively: That diversity matters, and diversity is good for business. Therefore, we must get comfortable being uncomfortable as we intentionally create environments that welcome these tough conversations.
After discussing the business case for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), participants will learn the terminology as the stage is set to explore a variety of tools and resources that support individual and organizational growth. Participants will then be guided through the creation of a personalized and actionable DEI leadership roadmap.

Every veterinarian is a leader that makes an impact in their workplace and community. One of the most valuable frameworks for leadership development is through the domains of emotional intelligence (EI) identified by Drs. Goleman and Boyatzis: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management. Within these four domains are 12 specific competencies that can be learned to increase understanding and mastery of emotional intelligence. The competencies are emotional self-awareness, emotional self-control, achievement orientation, positive outlook, adaptability, empathy, organizational awareness, influence, coach and mentor, conflict management, inspirational leadership, and teamwork.
Developing individual and team emotional intelligence provides methods for handling stress, managing conflict, and improving workplace relationships. Leaders who create a personal vision, identify their core values, and develop EI skills, help create a culture of trust, employee engagement, and wellbeing.
