Chief Diversity Officers 2nd Annual Boot Camp

Leading the Next Paradigm for Transformative Diversity Leadership 

CoopLew, the company leading the next paradigm for transformative diversity leadership, is launching its 2nd Annual Chief Diversity Officers Boot Camp on February 5-7, 2019 on the beautiful campus of the University of Indianapolis!
 
This unique professional development opportunity is designed to illuminate and address various success strategies and circumstances germane to CDO lived-experiences within the academy.  Professionals who are interested in establishing themselves as viable candidates to become chief diversity officers and emerging chief diversity officers who have begun their work in a new role, or have transitioned to a new institution, are prime candidates for this three-day experience.

National diversity circumstances demand a focused approach to preparing professionals who are/will assume CDO positions or advance to roles with more strategic responsibility. Moreover, results of the CoopLew National Survey on CDO Attitudes, Workplace Perceptions and Skill Applications, clearly indicate a dire need for new paradigms in CDO preparation, support, and national camaraderie. In response to this need, CoopLew seeks to attract and empower aspiring and emerging CDOs with skill-development experiences that answer the call for timely, data-based and transformative leadership.

More than other senior administrative officers, CDOs are required to engage in horizontal administration, and work across other vertical units with individuals responsible for those areas. To do this effectively, CDOs must develop knowledge and competency in a variety of institutional sectors. This CoopLew Boot Camp is planned for redefinition of CDO’s rules of engagement, perspectives, insights and application. Participants will explore and utilize practical, innovative and peer-reviewed techniques that help to navigate CDO’s most challenging lived-experiences in higher education. 

The Boot Camp is designed to provide:

  • Expertise for navigating “shadow culture” politics

  • Strategies for sharpening collaboration skills

  • Access to preferred skills desired by CDO supervisors and peers

  • Sharper skills for CDO executive presence and leadership of transformation
