What role does the brain play in overcoming the challenges around diversity and inclusion? According to recent advances neuroscience and cognitive science, the human mind sees and relates to other people in ways that are often masked to our conscious mind. But in uncovering these Unconscious Biases, we can better understand the organizational, human, and societal challenges around diversity, inclusion, cultural competency, and leadership. During this three-day interactive learning experience, you will gain new skills in decision-making, building inclusive teams and cultures, intercultural communications, and increasing employee engagement. At a time where our workforce and customer bases are continually shifting, you’ll come to understand the impact of Unconscious Bias on organizational behavior, employee productivity and engagement, and economic potential.
