CDO & DEI Leader Peer Support
With previous CDO and DEI leadership experiences in secondary education, with community colleges, and at Big 10, Big East, Big 12, and similar institutions, our consultants understand the good, bad, and ugly of breaking down institutional discrimination and oppression in PWIs to support the success of historically marginalized and underrepresented students, faculty, and staff. For the 2017-18 academic year Invictus HCM will pilot a free one - year service to CDOs and DEI leaders for peer support. The goal is to help CDO’s and DEI leaders have: 1) contact with a person they can trust and talk to for self care, 2) navigate challenging strategic decisions, 3) deal with confliction resolution, and 4) be a resource and connect them with others for best practices.
