Event Description:
Building the Foundation: A Diversity in the Workplace Series
A quarterly series designed to kickstart your DEI leadership journey
DEI commitments don’t mean much if your organization doesn’t have the results that show the change you’re enacting in the workplace and broader community. At Flint & Genesee Group, our DEI efforts go a step further to dismantle the inequities within workplaces by prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion best practices within team and organization structure. Using an interactive learning approach, this DEI leadership series aims to ensure that managers have the right tools to effectively lead their teams.

Session 2: Self-Awareness and Implicit Bias
Self-awareness is the ability to recognize and understand our own emotions and the effect of our actions on other people. In the workplace, self-awareness is something all employees should strive for. By taking control of their own actions and emotions, a self-aware employee takes challenges in stride and reacts in a calm, professional manner. 
There are many techniques to improve self-awareness and this training will show how your team can benefit from implementing them.
