An outward Approach to Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging
15th of July, 2022 8:30 - 5:30 SGT/MYT
Too many organizational efforts to address equity, diversity, and inclusion focus on behaviors alone. The marginalizing and discriminatory behaviors you are trying to eradicate are behavioral manifestations of a deeper issue—mindset. If you engage in change efforts that do not change mindset— the fundamental way we see and regard others—nothing will change. Arbinger’s Outward Inclusion workshop equips organizations with the tools to address the mindset and behaviors that get in the way of creating an inclusive workplace that promotes equity, celebrates diversity, and fosters real belonging.
The Outward Inclusion Workshop guides participants through a process of self-discovery to uncover unconscious bias and become equipped with practical tools to drive equity and inclusion within their teams and across the organization.
Outward Inclusion offers the opportunity to create a safe space where everyone is invited into the conversation. This workshop includes everything needed to not only implement but sustain inclusion practices organization-wide.
Outward Inclusion is a one-day workshop delivered in two sessions. Members of all levels of the organization are invited to engage in session one which requires no prerequisite. They will engage in transformational conversations that change the way they see those around them. The second session—Outward Inclusion for Leaders—builds on session one by providing practical tools for leadership to implement to enact lasting change. Leaders must attend both sessions.
Participants will receive the Outward Inclusion Handbook.
