Engaging with the Dilemmas of Diversity in the Workplace

Timezone: PDT



Often, we avoid addressing critical issues at work because conflict is uncomfortable. It may seem like avoiding difficult issues will relieve discomfort, but it will only magnify a problem and create an unmanageable conflict. Conflicts worth having don't have an easy answer or quick fix. Engaging with conflict has the potential to shift a workplace to be more aligned with the values and behaviors we need to thrive. 

Join us for this interactive webinar series on “Engaging with Conflict to Support Change in the Workplace” hosted by Dr. Marnie Jull. We will explore different dimensions of workplace conflict: microaggressions, the dilemmas of diversity, and leveraging change when you’re feeling stuck. 

In this second episode, we welcome Alejandro Campos Garcia and Samantha Heron, as we explore the dilemmas of diversity in the workplace. 

Samantha (she, her, hers and elle) is a conflict management consultant, fully insured mediator, facilitator and community connector in the SafeSport and sport sector in Canada. Samantha’s previous career, education, research, and personal values shape her approach to conflict management. Samantha emphasizes a highly collaborative approach focused on shared leadership, justice, empathy, and inclusion.  

Alejandro is the Associate Director Human Rights and EDI at Royal Roads University. Born in Havana, Alejandro identifies as a person of African descent, with Chinese and European ancestry, and uses the pronouns he/him. Alejandro is a sociologist by trade. Since 2017, he has drawn on his training as a researcher, policy analyst and educator to develop expertise in Equity Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in post-secondary education.  He is passionate about the inclusive and transformative exchange of ideas on topics related to social justice, anti-racism and human rights.
