The Inclusion Habit is an evidence-based DEI solution that focusses on individual habits and behavior change. It is designed to make behavior more inclusive through six habit-building phases—embracing inclusion matters, understanding biases and sources, dispersing with the negativity surrounding unconscious biases, practicing thinking deliberately, reprogramming incorrect intuitions, and becoming more empathetic. Without individual behavior change, the effects of DEI programming and policy are limited. In fact traditional programming and policy making can even thwart inclusion efforts. This webinar focusses on how we can leverage technology and what we know from behavior change science go beyond the current frontiers of DEI. It explores how daily activities, commitment devices and social accountability can create habits of understanding, empathy and inclusion.
- Discover that behavior science can catapult our DEI initiatives and make organizations more inclusive.
- Recognize implicit bias and transform misinformed instincts into more inclusive thoughts.
