Diversity and Inclusion
Estimated duration: 3 hours
Workshop Cost: $475 per session
Diversity and inclusion (D&I) is becoming a hot topic among organizations, and rightfully so. But before we tackle how an organization can attract a diverse talent and become more inclusive, we need to talk about biases.
We all have our biases, dismissing them does not help, we won’t fool anyone! We need to be aware of our own biases, and recognize them when they surface so we can mitigate them.
This workshop starts with defining biases (different from discrimination) and why they happen. We will identify five types of biases and how we can mitigate against them. We will explain the difference between biases and feeling excluded which is a good segue to D&I.
We will explore true diversity, versus what I call a “diversity mirage”, and talk about the importance of diversifying. Next, we will define four levels of inclusion, how we can build-up to the highest level, and embrace D&I in our organization. Finally, we will discuss the dangers of over-diversifying and over-inclusion (yes there are pitfalls!).
The workshop is equipped with multiple reflection and group exercises to drive the message home.
