Program for Inclusive Excellence

Creating workplaces where people belong

At the St. Norbert College Cassandra Voss Center, we believe that the best work environments are committed to treating people equitably, providing employees with a sense of belonging, and empowering them to contribute in meaningful ways. The Program for Inclusive Excellence is focused on helping organizations cultivate an inclusive work environment where people can relate to each other in profound ways.

The Program for Inclusive Excellence is a six-month, cohort-based program that offers tools for organizations to enhance their diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) work in pursuit of true inclusive excellence. Representatives from corporate and nonprofit organizations can deepen their understanding of critical issues related to identity, develop meaningful partnerships and collaborations, and make an impact in the communities they serve.

Topics for exploration:

  • Effective strategies for cultivation organizational buy-in to DEIB work
  • Crafting your organization's DEIB mission and purpose
  • Managing and overcoming individual and organizational barriers to DEIB work
  • Engaging diverse groups in the conversation
  • Enacting meaningful change (not just talk) to create environments where everyone can thrive

Program components:

  • Intake assessment: Individuals participate in an intake assessment and work with CVC staff to identify areas for growth, create individualized goals and create a community-impact proposal.
  • Full-day retreat: This full-day retreat will allow participants to create a baseline for critical dialogue around issues of DEIB, get to know one another and shape goals for the full cohort experience.
  • Five half-day sessions: Cohort groups will be engaged with leading experts around issues related to DEIB and deepen their understanding and skill set for engaging in this important work. 

Participant costs for the Program for Inclusive Excellence cover the intake assessment, meetings, facilitation, refreshments and meeting materials.

Registration for our Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 cohorts is now open!
