How to Be a Sponsor of Diverse Teams, May 6, 2020

Unconscious bias is a popular term in conjunction with diversity and inclusion. These biases, the social stereotypes about certain groups of people that we form without explicitly realizing, impacts all of us. Unconscious bias training abounds in corporate settings, and while that’s the first step, it’s not enough. Rania Anderson’s engaging, actionable presentation answers the question “What now?” Using her research-based behavioral framework, Rania guides leaders to go from awareness, to the actions and advocacy it takes to intentionally and proactively build, manage and lead high-performing, diverse teams where all employees feel included and a sense of belonging.

In this session, leadership expert Rania Anderson will discuss how to go from awareness to action and advocacy. She will explain diversity & inclusion from a leadership standpoint and describe how to challenge the status quo. Attendees will learn how to address bias and effectively challenge negative behaviors, as well as how to recruit and retain a high-performing diverse team and build an inclusive environment.

By the end of this session, you will be able to identify opportunities to make the workplace more equitable, demonstrate an open mindset and deep curiosity about others, and mentor, sponsor, and advocate for diverse talent through more equity, inclusion and balanced leadership teams.
