Mindful Inclusion Training
for Unconscious Bias
A Mindful Approach to Creating Inclusive Workplaces
Leaders recognize the need to address racial and other forms of inequity in the workplace now more than any other time in our history. Companies are examining their Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategies and seeking solutions to foster a more inclusive workforce. But many organizations are missing a critical piece of the puzzle.
Unconscious bias education is incomplete unless it addresses cognitive processes that underlie prejudice . Mindfulness training is a key ingredient.
Although awareness of bias is not a solution, it is the first step toward mitigation and mindfulness training targets awareness. The fact that biases are, by their nature, unconscious, makes them difficult to perceive, let alone mitigate. Designed for leaders and teams committed to fostering an inclusive work culture, this training:
- Examines the nature of unconscious bias and its impact in the workplace
- Explores the science behind mindfulness and how it interrupts automatic, habitual responses.
- Promotes higher performance by individuals, teams and ultimately the organization
The benefit potential among teams and in workplace cultures who are trained in mindfulness is huge. In addition to helping to reduce bias, other benefits of mindfulness include:
- resilience and effectiveness
- productivity and performance
- job satisfaction
- stress reduction and anxiety
- critical thinking and concentration
- enhanced sleep quality
- sense of joy and well-being
Although conversations about bias can be daunting, leaders can and should tackle these issues head on. Doing so can ultimately improve staff wellness, support worker retention, and foster a more inclusive environment.
Who This Training is For
- Organizational Leaders
- Mid to Senior Level Managers
- Executive Assistants
Engagements are delivered as a full-day, half-day, or two-hour experiential workshop.
Reshape the Future of Your Workplace
Create A Shared Vision
Why is your organization committing to DEI? What is the ideal future you want to create? What does an equitable and inclusive workforce look like? What resources are needed to lead you towards that shared vision? What are the barriers to change? What structures and systems need to be changed?
Create a Roadmap
Engage all levels of the organization and invite diverse perspectives when creating a road map. Announce your organization’s position against discrimination in all of its forms. Illustrate immediate actions and hold the organization accountable for the long term.
Lead by Example
Build the inner capacity to engage in difficult conversations about race and equity. Harness the power of leadership to model behavior and values that foster an equitable, inclusive and compassionate workplace culture. Empower leadership teams to drive change.
What new policies and procedures are pushing change forward and how do you measure them? Are more people of color represented at multiple levels of the organization, including leadership? Are opportunities being created for training, development and advancements for underrepresented groups?
