Now, more than ever, supervisors in higher education must create more inclusive spaces reflective of the values and actions we hope to inspire in students. While we can identify what it means to be multiculturally aware and knowledgeable, modeling multiculturally competent action and skills is far more impactful and requires considerable intention and practice.
Inclusive Supervision is an intentional approach to supervision that is informed through a lens of multicultural competence and inclusion. Inclusive supervisors in student affairs embody the values and principles of the profession, demonstrating a commitment to the creation of safe spaces, the cultivation of individual's identities in the workplace, an openness and willingness to learn, and the ability to build staff's competency in the areas of multicultural competence and inclusion.
A Model for Professional Practice:
Inclusive Supervision in Student Affairs provides a new, action-oriented model that addresses what supervisors should do to create more inclusive environments for all staff and to help inform socially just practice within the profession. Grounded in theory and research and framed through the lens of continuous professional development and personal growth, this webinar will help Student Affairs professionals at all levels develop effective leadership skills that demonstrate multicultural competence. Providing a conceptual model and self-assessment tool to enhance professionals’ preparation for supervision, this webinar will allow participants to reflect upon their capacity to enact an inclusive supervisory approach.
From participating in the workshop, attendees will:
- Understand the nature, impact, and importance of inclusive supervision in the supervisory relationship.
- Learn the elements of Inclusive Supervision as a model of professional practice.
- Reflect on one’s strengths and recognize potential barriers to enacting inclusive supervision.
- Identify strategies and techniques for becoming a more inclusive supervisor.
Who Should Attend:
Inclusive supervision is a model of professional practice for individuals at all levels of supervision. Current and more experienced supervisors will benefit from reflecting on their supervisory approach and challenging themselves to consider enacting inclusive supervision practices. New professionals will benefit from learning a new model of supervision that can be incorporated into one’s philosophy of practice. Finally, supervisees can also benefit from reflecting on their supervisory relationships and gaining the knowledge, skills, and strategies to advocate for their needs in their current supervisory relationships.
