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. Movements such as Black Lives Matter and #MeToo have fuelled broader conversations around difference and inclusion, with awareness growing of the bias individuals face on the basis of disability, sexual orientation, or social background.

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.

Join us for our ‘Overcoming Unconscious Bias: Fostering Conscious Inclusion at Work’ event to discover how you can address barriers and bias faced by prospective and current staff, enabling you to create a framework for lasting change and progress.

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