Unconscious Bias: Building a Diverse and Inclusive Culture

Increasingly, organizations are recognizing the need to build inclusive workplaces that:

  • attract
  • advance
  • and retain diverse talent.

Employees who feel they do not belong often leave or cover up their differences. This drives talent away, normalizes discrimination, and stifles innovation. Conversely, employees that feel safe bring their best selves to work.

Understanding what unconscious bias is and how it impacts our decisions is key to fostering more inclusive and intercultural workplaces, practices, and leadership.

Ultimately, developing a greater understanding of unconscious bias helps turn diversity into a strategic business advantage.

In this session, Wyle Baoween, CEO of HRx, will explain the importance of fostering an inclusive workplace in today’s market and provide examples of unconscious bias and its impact on inclusion, engagement, and performance.

Who is this breakfast for? 

This event is designed for business leaders, organizational decision makers, HR professionals, and teams.

The format:

You’ll enjoy networking with some of Vancouver’s most influential leaders as well as a delicious continental breakfast at Glowbal by Telus Garden.
