From Compliant to Conscious: Awakening a Community of Champions
375E
Human Resources

In nature, biodiversity is "the variety of life and its processes," which can be thought of as the diverse and richness of life that exists on earth. Yet in business, diversity continues to be feared, a threat versus an opportunity. This mindset impedes the ability to move beyond our comfort zones, to become more conscious, curious and compassionate about diversity. The result? A perpetual cycle of compliance-related approaches for managing diversity instead of a conscious effort to understand and embrace the variety of life.

It’s easy for each of us to assume we would know how to behave in any situation. However, when that situation involves sexual misconduct in the workplace or at a work-related social event, too many people, both men and women, find themselves frozen in a dilemma of how to react. This session is an open discussion of sexual misconduct to help you prepare for the situation in the event that it happens to you.
