This interactive session will outline the benefits of a psychologically safe organization and will offer specific strategies that can be used to address common challenges and create a culture that supports equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). As organizations work to fully embed EDI in their values, goals, and culture, it is vital to create safe spaces for staff to learn, share, challenge ideas, and engage in respectful dialogue. This process also helps staff advance their own personal and professional journeys. While psychological safety is a state of feeling supported and accepted and a place where mistakes are treated as opportunities to learn, it isn’t free of accountability or discomfort. Learn how to help your organization navigate these complexities so that all staff can benefit.

Session Learning Objectives

  • How brain function, culture, and society contribute to implicit bias
  • Common ways implicit bias is present in the workplace and how mental processes and culture contribute
  • Strategies for increasing intercultural awareness as part of their personal EDI journey
  • Strategies for disrupting implicit bias in their daily work

About the Series

Successfully leading equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) initiatives in the workplace requires a deep understanding of the common challenges that affect organizational culture, as well as practices that build bridges and create a stronger community. This virtual learning series is designed for staff who are leading their organizations’ EDI efforts and want to grow their understanding and application of key EDI concepts. Participants will be able to better address complex workplace dynamics and craft meaningful strategies for growth.

Take advantage of three unique two-hour webinars on core concepts. They can serve as a foundational learning series for staff who are new to leading EDI initiatives, or as a refresher course for those looking to revamp or relaunch an EDI initiative.
