In case you missed the broadcast of Your Brain is Good at Inclusion... Except When It’s Not, or you’re back for an encore viewing, we’re happy to share this science-based workshop presented by diversity expert, Dr. Steve Robbins. This recording will be available until Thursday, August 13, at midnight ET.

About This Webcast

This video provides an innovative, science-based look at the benefits of creating inclusive workplaces. Dr. Robbins explores the human, hard-wired need to be valued and included – and what happens when that need is not met. Using the fields of cognitive neuroscience, social-psychology, and communication, the workshop will demonstrate how our brain has natural and developed tendencies (i.e. biases) that can help us achieve goals, but also lead to unintended consequences, like the exclusion of others who are different than us.

Dr. Robbins shows that the key to battling bias in organizations begins with understanding how the human brain operates, but ultimately requires changes in individual and organizational patterns of beliefs and behaviors. Listeners will be provided with terms and a language that invite people into productive conversations about inclusion and diversity.
