Today's top business leaders recognize the importance of leading inclusively and encouraging diversity in the workforce. Research tells us that diversity leads to better decision making. It's important for an organization's executives to demonstrate the correct "tone from the top" to gain buy-in when looking to convert policies into action. 

How exactly does an organization's desire to be diverse and inclusive become part of its culture?  Find out at our next panel discussion, when we focus on how leaders can live their organization's values and encourage similar behaviour in their employees.

Hosted by the Women's Leadership Circle, this is the third event in our successful Unconscious Bias series. Our featured panel of leaders are recognized within Greater Vancouver's business community for their culture and diversity & inclusiveness initiatives.

What you will gain by attending:

  • Understand the psychology behind unconscious bias and learn the traits of an inclusive leader that encourages diversity in the workplace.
  • Hear the panellists speak about having courage in challenging situations that can threaten an organization's diversity and inclusiveness.
  • Have interactive and reflective conversations with other professionals on how to incorporate "tones from the top" into your company culture.
  • Ask Greater Vancouver business leaders for their professional insight on your questions about unconscious bias.
