Deep Diversity: Building Inclusion One Micro-Behaviour at a Time

What if our interactions with people of other backgrounds (including race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.) are influenced by what is happening below the radar of our awareness? Research demonstrates that, in spite of our good intentions and fair-mindedness, our unconscious mind and automatic brain processes frequently favour those most "like us." This creates blind spots and results in systemic discrimination that prevents many hard-working people and groups from moving forward in society.

To work towards diversity and inclusion, leaders need to understand how the mind and socialization work together, and what steps can be undertaken to offset implicit bias in team and workplace practices. 

Join us for a compelling session based on the bestselling book Deep Diversity: Overcoming Us vs. Them to deepen your leadership knowledge and skills and advance inclusion in the Canadian public service.
