11:05-11:35am The Science of Inclusive Cultures
While an increasing number of organizations embrace the importance of diversity, practicing inclusion is often much harder. Biologically, humans need to belong—to feel included, supported, and valued by others socially. Yet inclusion can be a difficult thing to understand, measure or improve. Worse still, there are a number of conventional practices in organizations that can potentially make inclusion worse. That’s where science can help.
In this science rich, yet practical session, Dr David Rock will explore the biological basis of inclusion, giving you a new way to think about it, measure it and manage it.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why inclusion has such an impact on performance
- The common traps to building an inclusive culture and how to avoid them
- The best way to go about developing inclusive practices day to day at scale
