About the course

Week one will offer a framework that shows what gets in the way of our ability to Just Work. 

Week two will describe what leaders can do to prevent bias, prejudice and bullying from destroying teamwork. 

Week three will describe how to be an upstander not a bystander. 

Week four will offer an approach to deciding how / whether to respond if you experience bias, prejudice and/or bullying. 

Week five will help you learn how to respond effectively to feedback that you’ve exhibited attitudes or behaviors that inhibit your team’s ability to Just Work. 

Week six will describe what happens when power dynamics enter the equation, and what leaders can do about it. 

Week seven will offer ideas for how you can fight the power without blowing up your career.

Week eight will explain why “oblivious exclusion” is so destructive in the workplace so that we can recognize and change it, and other common forms of systemic injustice.

Each 90 minute session will end with time for Q&A between Trier, Kim, and the audience. 

In addition, students will tell stories from their lives, and rewrite these stories, imagining: what could have yielded a better outcome? By the end of this course, you’ll have the confidence you need to build environments in which everyone can Just Work.
