EI, EI, Oh! Foundational Emotional Intelligence Skills for Successful Equity & Inclusion Programs

Originally aired on March 1, 2023
Presented by Amy Steindler '80

It's challenging to maintain an inclusive mindset while under pressure to meet organizational deadlines and achieve personal career goals. But it’s necessary not only for an organization to fulfill its mission and vision and meet profitability benchmarks, but for society to function as a sustainable democracy that recognizes the role of social justice in its survival.

 Emotional intelligence skills help us acknowledge unfamiliar perspectives. Certified Emotional Intelligence Coach Amy Steindler ’80 leads a thoughtful and thought-provoking discussion about the interaction of the two “EIs” — emotional intelligence and equity & inclusion — that drive quality communication and deep insight, normalizing discomfort for the greater good. She discusses the emotional intelligence skills that are most likely to support successful efforts to create the kinds of equitable and inclusive environments which move society forward.
