About Dr. Brent Scholar:
Dr. Scholar is a leadership consultant, a professor at Arizona State University and an Education Committee member of Diversity Leadership Alliance. He earned his doctorate in Organizational Leadership, and believes everyone has a leader inside them. Using the guiding principles of Educate, Empower and Engage, Scholar Consulting creates leaders in all aspects of a business or organization’s life cycle. This powerful model guides our work as people learn about themselves and how what they do affects all aspects of their lives. They then find the motivation to move forward and ultimately implement their desires as their best leaders in their sphere of influence. When he is not inspiring tomorrow’s leaders he spends time traveling with his wife, taking care of their two cats, and competing in marathons and triathlons throughout the year.
Our work spaces are becoming more diverse with each passing day. The cultural environment in these places need greater shifts in order to support everyone. A shift starts by determining if we are in a safe place for diversity. As a woman leading the way, you need to be able to create a space for diversity and inclusion. In this interactive discussion, we will identify what is meant by diversity, review statistics related to diversity, and determine what constitutes a safe place. Most importantly, together we will explore ways to make our places safer ones for diversity and inclusion, and you will leave with a simple empowering tool to begin creating a SAFE place for everyone.
