Building a diverse workforce, comprised of individuals from various backgrounds, life experiences, and abilities, brings to the workplace a unique depth of knowledge and perspective. When workers are encouraged to discover and cultivate their individual strengths and contributions, both the workforce and the business thrive. However, despite the obvious benefits of diversity, misconceptions, fear, and bias can often make it difficult to embrace inclusion.
In this forum, Kuen Tang, a self-advocate for persons with disabilities, will provide strategies on how to overcome fear to embrace inclusion, cultivate understanding and fully unleash your team’s talent and passion.
This session is for HR or business leaders hoping to make a positive change in their organizations’ culture, DE&I initiatives and ultimately, productivity while tackling the bias and fears that often affect growth.
