Ingrained beliefs not only influence the way we perceive the world but also how we behave and interact with others. This session will address unconscious bias in the workplace. From fair hiring processes and non-objective promotions to creating inclusive and safe office environments for all employees—unconscious bias continues to negatively affect the workplace. Even more, the results are more than just financial. Recent research on the topic of workplace diversity has shown that bias can be costly for businesses. Diversity of thought is an invaluable tool that brings authentic, collaborative, community-building, and border-crossing skills to the decision-making table.
This workshop will discuss:
- how businesses can become more inclusive
- more effective diversity strategies
- the benefits of “diversity of thought” on business growth and innovation
