DIAN Decade Thought Leadership Podcast Series features a number of leading D&I experts that we have worked with over the years with Asian market knowledge. Each podcast will address a different topic, depending on the expertise of the featured expert.
Implementing 'The Live Case Study'
In this episode, we explore Connie Wong's interactive 'live case study' as a tool for expanding conversations and building awareness around D&I. We also learn more about unconscious bias and how training to mitigate biases, particularly around cultural differences, has evolved over the years. Connie is Managing Director of CSW Associate Inc., the leading global consulting firm with teams based in over 25 countries focusing on diversity and inclusion in today's workforce.
