Actively tackling bias in the workplace helps build better organizations … and better people. If you want to unleash the true potential of your workforce, it’s important to create an environment in which diverse perspectives, contributions, and talents can flourish – where everyone feels valued and visible.
Participants will discover in this course how they can co-create a culture where diversity and inclusion are unleashed to foster greater innovation, solutions, and belonging.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
The first step in creating an inclusive culture is surfacing and dismantling unconscious belief structures that skew decision-making and cloud objectivity. Mitigating bias is not a one-and-done event; it is a journey. Accordingly, this highly interactive course is paced and structured to help you recognize bias and interrupt it.
Because unbiasing is about accountability instead of blame, participants are invited to move through this learning experience with curiosity and compassion. They will explore the impact of bias and stereotyping through a variety of activities, including large group and team exercises, individual reflection, videos, scenario practice and role play. Participants will also learn and practice inclusive behaviors, discovering how they can co-create a culture where diversity and inclusion are unleashed to foster greater innovation, solutions, and belonging. Note, there is a one (1) hour self-paced exercise required outside the six hours of live instruction.
Session Goal: To enable you to recognize and mitigate the impact of unconscious bias in the workplace
Session Goal: To broaden your perspective around your and others’ experiences of dimensions of diversity, power, and privilege
Session Goal: To help you build ally skills and create and sustain a culture of inclusion
