What assumptions and conclusions do you jump to without thinking? Learn to overcome “unconscious bias” and embrace diversity to grow your business.
People are diverse in a number of ways, not just in ways we can see. We live in a world of diversity, and bias matters when people are excluded or treated unfairly based on things like the colour of their skin, gender, age, or wealth.
By the end of this session you will understand:
- What unconscious bias is and how it shows up in our daily lives to influence our behaviour
- The importance of resisting and overcoming unconscious bias to create an environment that is innovative and productive
- How to commit to inclusive leader behaviours to create an action plan for change
