Inclusion Drives Innovation
Inclusion Drives Innovation is a twelve-week professional development program designed by and for Kendall Square Association members focused on building anti-racist organizations, understanding cultural and social identity, unpacking bias, microaggressions, allyship, and leading across differences. Inclusion Drives Innovation will empower participants to expedite the rate of change in their organizations by fostering collaboration and peer accountability, highlighting bright spots, and creating a forum to share best practices. Building on two years of insights drawn from the KSA Diversity Equity and Inclusion learning community, Inclusion Drives Innovation focuses on addressing racism as the critical starting point that enables change. KSA has developed Inclusion Drives Innovation in collaboration with She+ Geeks Out and a host committee of 12 Kendall organizations. This program will be entirely virtual, leveraging digital platforms to create a community, even when participants need to maintain physical distance.
