Inclusive Leadership Program

The Inclusive Leadership Program (ILP) focuses on diversity, equity, and inclusion as foundations for leadership. Students will learn new leadership competencies that will enhance their understanding and working with diverse communities, advocating for others, leading with care, and understanding of self. Students can participate by either attending events on a drop-in basis or completing program requirements for certification. Students who complete ILP certification will be acknowledged at Student Leadership Awards at the end of the academic year.

DIRC is currently redesigning all of its educational opportunities. Please check back in Fall 2023 for the relaunch of the Inclusive Leadership Program! For information or inquiries about the program, please contact Torrell Foree via email.


Students will be able to:

  • Explore and state attributes of different communications styles
  • Listen to/connect the communication style to their own experiences 
  • Analyze their own communication style and its effect on their interest

This workshop highlights various aspects of different individuals (what is observable, what is assumed), how culture impacts behavior, and the meaning that individuals attach to culturally-influenced behaviors. Through a role play exercise students can begin to understand what affects one’s perspective, and how to work with others from different cultures and communication styles.
