Leveraging Unconscious Bias for Your Inclusive Organization
Todd Odgers is the Principal of the NorQuest College Centre for Intercultural Education (CIE) in Edmonton. The CIE is a reseach and training centre that has worked with close to 100 organizations in business, industry, and higher education to develop intercultural skill and tools that make the workplace inclusive. Prior to leading the CIE he spent ten years in Japan teaching and training to develop intercultural compentence to measure corporation in Japan.
Edmonton based organizations will continue to become more diverse as we go forward. However, the mark of success is not the range of diversities in an organization, but how well that mix works to achieve organizational goals. Todd's session will invite us to think differently about how we can use implicit bias as a tool to grow the effectiveness of our Diversity and Inclusion initiatives.
We recommend registering early as seatingis limited for this event.
Hope to see you all there.
