Introduction to Diversity and Inclusion (Webinar)

Introduction to Diversity and Inclusion (Webinar)

Tuesday, 16 May 2017 -
12:30pm to 1:30pm
About: 

Not everyone gets inclusion and not everyone can see the benefits of a diverse organisation. A 2015 McKinsey Report illustrated that gender-diverse companies are 15% more likely to outperform their counterparts and those that are ethnically diverse are 35% more likely to outperform.

On Tuesday 16th May, during Learning at Work Week, we will be hosting an hours webinar on diversity and inclusion. Our webinar will outline the difference between inclusion and diversity; we will equip you with tools and techniques on how to make your colleagues get it; and how to make inclusion a reality in your organisation.

In our Transactional Analysis webinar we will:

  • Define how this study of human interactions effects our day to day lives
  • Review some of the core models of Transactional Analysis and their relevance to the workplace
  • Explore the concept’s value in understanding workplace culture

Unconscious Bias in Decision-Making

Thursday, 25 May 2017 -
10:00am to 12:00pm

We all have bias but do we realise the impact it has on our decision making at work?
