Description

Format Change Notice – As social distancing is advised to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we have made the decision to change the format of our Professional Series Workshop and deliver it virtually. Please get in touch with any questions


A company is only as good as its culture. To build an inclusive culture is not only HR's role, but also every manager's and employee's responsibility. It is undeniable with tremendous research findings that an inclusive work environment is not just a nice-to-have or the right-thing-to-do, it can make or break a company. You can co-create a more supportive and engaging workplace. An understanding of the business case for Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) and the changing diverse world will lay a strong foundation to get the buy-in of promoting D&I. Through the lens of perceptual, institutional, and psychological processes that impact the ways people interact with each other with unconscious bias and the insider/outsider mindset, we can discover the barriers. Awareness and mindset change are the initial steps. In the workshop, participants will also be encouraged to start planning for their personal as well as organizational actions.
