About this event

The only way your company succeeds in today’s market is by having an engaged, committed workforce aligned with your goals, able to continuously generate fresh ideas and implement them in the quickest, smartest ways. That cannot be done with a workforce made up of people who all look and think the same. To achieve diversity of thought, companies require diverse voices, which can only happen when managers, executives and HR know how to:

  • recruit, retain and reward the best talent
  • give everyone the same freedom to share ideas, express opinions, and fail without repercussion, and
  • acknowledge and address their own unconscious bias as a way to actively move themselves, the company, and all of society forward

Overview: To achieve diversity of thought, companies must recruit, retain and reward diverse voices. This happens when leadership trains themselves and their workforce to tackle their own inherent bias and ensure that performance metrics are based on the outcomes achieved, not who achieved them.

What You’ll Take Away: Corporate leaders and future leaders will learn how to spot their own unconscious bias, where it comes from, and how to overcome it in order to ensure their workforce is comprised of the best possible talent, with the freedom to give their best every day.

Why It Matters: The tech industry is facing an enormous backlash over its treatment of women and other “non-traditional” hires and it's our responsibility to acknowledge our own inherent bias, whether conscious or unconscious, and take an active role in eliminating it from ourselves and our companies. It’s just good business.
