Diversity, Equity and Inclusion/Cultural Competencies

Learn how two institutions are using Liberating Structures to empower campus members to break down barriers; to promote creativity and energize innovation; and to foster a culture of increased purposefulness, listening, collaboration, inclusivity and trust.
