Session Downloads: 2021 CKLDP Session 08_The Future of Our Culture

This session is designed as a professional development program that will challenge and help scholars explore their impact on the future of our culture at an individual, organizational, and industry level.  It will break down the psychology behind diversity, equity, and inclusion and why understanding its importance is essential to strong leadership.  The session will also explore strategic thinking and layout action plans to help build passionate career visions and leadership styles.

The Future of our Culture will be profoundly shaped by the issues of our time. As architects, we have the ability and responsibility to be part of the solution for future generations.  This session will include presentations, workshops, and an opportunity to reflect on this past year.  The first presentation will help us understand and teach us skills to learn one of the most pressing issues of our generation: how to properly apply lessons of equity, diversity, inclusion in our current leadership development.  The second presentation will help guide us through our own career goals and translate it into making a change in our profession.  Finally the scholars will have the opportunity to review their progress through their most recent LSI reports.  We will discuss the improvements from the beginning of this program and reflect on the impact and value CKLDP has had on our careers as future leaders of our profession.
