Diversity & Inclusion Toolkit

The tools and resources presented below are intended to provide guidance and support to DFA staff in furthering their understanding about various diversity and inclusion topics as well as suggest practical ways to apply that understanding in various aspects of the work life, from team conversations to serving on a hiring committee.

Conversation Engagements

DFA Diversity & Inclusion Conversation Engagements

Intended to provide information and practical guidance for team leaders, managers, and supervisors to engage their staff, teams, and departments in conversations on diversity and inclusion topics, including pronouns, gender and generational bias, microaggressions, stereotypes, etc. with the help of certified facilitators.

Each topic is presented on a separate handout covering the context for the topic, conversation starters to facilitate engagement, and additional resources. The Facilitator Guide provides direction on how to facilitate the conversation on any of those topics and is to be used by the facilitator to prepare for any of those conversations.

The topics should be introduced in the order they are listed below. Topics are availble for review now; however, will be rolled out by each department starting in Feb. 2023.
