Lack of diversity and gender equity are often thought of as a “pipeline problem”. The real problem, however boils down to implicit or unconscious bias. Mindfulness techniques have the ability to throw a light on unconscious behaviors and biases in a gentle, yet powerful way. This approach impacts how leaders view themselves, the world and what are called “out groups”—groups that tend to be minimized in society. Beyond intellectually processing information and learning right/wrong behavior, mindfulness can reduce implicit bias, and enables leaders to create a fresh new perspective in hiring, training and promoting women and people of color.
Attendees will learn: • how and when key concepts and biases develop • a powerful mindfulness technique, creating a new mind-script to see others as equals • how to create safe, non-judgmental and supportive spaces • to take these inner shifts into outer practices and policies
