    Diversity and inclusion has always been an important topic and is one of the 23 capabilities (Cultural Awareness and Inclusion) in the Talent Development (TD) Capability Model. In these times of heightened awareness, it's critical for talent development professionals to foster an inclusive work environment and convey respect for different perspectives, races, religions, backgrounds, customs, abilities, behaviors and norms. This effort from the TD community will help to integrate D&I principles into their organizations TD strategies and initiatives.

    Join us for a complimentary webcast where our presenters will discuss how to help create a diverse workplace culture that welcomes the differences of all people, and creates an environment of learning and encourages sensitivity.

    Guest Speakers:

    Christopher Janson, PhD is an associate professor and the Director of the University of North Florida’s Center for Urban Education and Policy (CUEP). Chris has authored over 20 journal articles and book chapters on topics related to educator preparation, community-engaged practices, and participatory approaches to organizational and community development.

    Dr. Janson’s community-focused scholarship and practices are built from a commitment to advocating alongside, rather than for, those in historically underserved communities and re-imagining approaches to organizational and community development in which the wisdom and knowledge of local residents informs and drive change. Dr. Janson is apart of both national and local networks of community educators, leaders, and organizers who use democratic processes in communities to develop and facilitate Community Learning Exchanges (CLEs). CLEs are inter-organizational, interracial, and multi-generational convening designed to strengthen the social and political fabric of communities through individual and collective strengths, gifts, and assets. This CLE approach is described in a book Chris co-authored titled, Reframing Community Partnerships in Education: Uniting the Power of Place and Wisdom of People.

    More recently, Dr. Janson has focused CLE processes and pedagogies on multiracial conversations and convening around issues of race and structural racism working with organizations and groups including the colleges and other units at UNF, the Jacksonville Community Remembrance Project and 904ward, The Bolles School, Boys & Girls Club of NE Florida, Jacksonville Kids Hope Alliance, The Eastside Brotherhood, and Agape Family Health.

    Dr. Rudy F. Jamison Jr. is a native of Jacksonville, FL and proud graduate of Jean Ribault Sr. High School, Florida A&M University, and University of North Florida. Dr. Jamison currently works as faculty and Assistant Director of the Center for Urban Education and Policy in University of North Florida’s College of Education and Human Services. His academic interests include: Black leadership development, community organizing, diversification of teacher education, culturally responsive teaching/leadership, career mobility, developmental relationships, and self- monitoring. Dr. Jamison is committed to advancing consciousness around equity, racism, and social justice in ways that assess, challenge, and support a more virtuous humanity.
