Competency Area: Collaboration & Group Dynamics
Required of second year O&M MS and MEd students; others by written permission of Program Director provided to Registrar?s Office via Antioch email.

Successfully managing diversity in organizations requires an understanding of the dynamics of difference, the skills to communicate effectively across differences, and the ability to self-monitor and model inclusive leadership. This course is intended to develop knowledge and competencies for working effectively in a diverse work environment. Students will explore their own values, beliefs, and biases related to diversity; examine issues of sameness and difference; and enhance diagnostic skills for analyzing diversity dynamics at the interpersonal, team, and organizational levels. Students will do additional readings and discussions, field or research projects, or case study analysis on-line. Students should check the course site in Sakai for on-line assignments that will begin prior to the first class meeting.
