Building diverse organizations demands skilled and capable leaders. Effective strategies from senior leadership can greatly improve an organization’s impact, as well as strengthen relations amongst its employees, clients, and the community.

Strategies for Building and Leading Diverse Organizations is a new executive program at Harvard Kennedy School that explores creating, managing, and optimizing diversity in public, corporate, and nonprofit organizations. Chaired by Dr. Robert Livingston, this program will provide you with a deep understanding of the complex issues diversity presents within your organization as well as your community, and it will demonstrate the performance advantages diversity offers in your workplace. Innovative frameworks will be introduced to teach you how to best structure your organization and interact with a community diverse in experience, background, culture, and values.
