Gender diversity and unconscious bias are some of the challenges facing employers. Creating a diverse and inclusive workforce has been shown to build engagement, productivity, wellbeing and innovation. We get to the core cognitive and attitudinal factors underpinning these issues through our programs, with a focus on the following two key areas.
TACKLING UNCONSCIOUS BIAS
The productivity and performance benefits of a diverse organisation have been widely documented. Our diversity and inclusion programs include understanding unconscious bias and how biases impact on our everyday decisions. We believe raising the awareness of unconscious bias within organisations is fundamental in creating and embedding a diverse and inclusive culture. Our programs provide practical advice to assist organisations to challenge and eliminate unfair biases and to help improve the quality of decisions, thereby contributing to improvements in organisational effectiveness.
PREVENTING & RESPONDING TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Organisations are key settings for the prevention of domestic violence, as most men and women in domestic violence situations are in paid work. This means that workplaces are directly affected by the impacts of domestic violence, and bear substantial productivity costs associated with domestic violence, including potential safety risks to other employees. Our programs explore the key organisational issues relating to domestic violence and provide a skill-building component to increase participants' confidence and capability in appropriately supporting colleagues who may be in an abusive relationship.
