Thursday, 28th January 2021 | Online

Conversations around diversity and inclusive behaviours have changed radically over the past months and years, altering business agendas as well as consumer and staff expectations as a result. Organisations must get serious about advancing positive change if they are to attract the best talent, ensure that their staff can achieve their potential and protect their reputations for good business practice.

With this in mind, Dods D&I are offering a practical, immersive and comprehensive training day, to enable you to ensure that inclusion is consciously fostered and unconscious bias is overcome in your organisation. 

Our ‘Overcoming Unconscious Bias: Fostering Conscious Inclusion at Work’ event takes a systemic rather than an individual approach to addressing unconscious bias.

Over the course of the day, expert speakers will guide you in interrogating how unconscious bias can have an impact in the workplace -- especially in recruitment and reward processes, and organisational culture -- and you will ultimately come away with the tools and knowledge you need to create the necessary conditions for conscious inclusion in your organisation's culture, processes and practice. 

Please note that video recordings of each session will be made available to delegates in the days following the event. 

Key Speakers include:

  • Sarah J Churchman OBE, Chief Inclusion, Community & Wellbeing Officer, PwC
  • Mads Lange Møller-Larsen, Consultant, Living Institute

  • Katie Jacobs, Senior Stakeholder Lead, CIPD

  • Jonny Gifford, Senior Advisor for Organisational Behaviour, CIPD

  • Rob Neil OBE, Director, Krystal Alliance

  • Angela Peacock, CEO, PDT Global  

  • Carmen Amador Barreiro, Senior Customer Success Manager, Thomas International

  • Perrine Farque, Founder & Director, Inspired Human
