+++++++++++

Governments operate in complex environments with increased demands and limited resources. Policy analysts in this environment are often called to make ethical and far reaching decisions daily. As a scholar of public policy and a former analyst within the President of South Africa I developed a system that makes the complex simple, the methods accessible and the process replicable. 

And now…I want to share this system with you in this course.

Instructor Biography

Warm greetings to you. My name is Dr. Warren Leslie Chalklen, a passionate educator and scholar in the field of multiculturalism. I have been teaching online and face to face classes for the past three years and wanted to begin sharing what I have learned with the world. My research area focuses on how to move multicultural theory to practice. My focus is the intersections of race, class, religion, sexual orientation, and geography in reproducing power in society.

To develop my knowledge base further, I have traveled extensively and taught courses in multiculturalism in universities across the world: Texas A&M University, University of Dar Es Salaam, and University of Witwatersrand. My published work includes an analysis of race in South Africa and the United States.

As my goal is to learn from, and impact people interested in multicultural issues the world over; I aim to produce courses on Udemy that continue to make our communities, states, nations, and the world a more inclusive and welcoming place for all.
