Diversity is a fact, inclusion is a choice

Event details

Diversity is a matter of makeup and composition. Inclusion is a matter of belief and behaviour. Diversity benefits no one unless we can unleash its power; simply putting diverse people together doesn't tap their creative potential. Inclusion does that. Inclusion releases talent and activates a cooperative system to harvest that talent. Without inclusion, we stall, sputter, and break down. Yet many organizations declare victory after becoming more diverse. That's a premature and uncritical celebration. Becoming more diverse is just the first step in a two-step transformation.

This webinar will discuss the socialisation of exclusionary bias and how to accelerate its removal. We will also discuss the difference between bonding and bridging behaviours and conduct a global brainstorming session to identify specific bridging behaviors that organisations can implement to create sanctuaries of inclusion. Findings will be gathered, designed, and shared following the event.
