Diversity, Innovation, and Bias

What a wonderful event! Renée Bazile-Jones, Senior Director Learning, Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion facilitated a wonderful interactive session on Diversity, Inclusion, and Innovation for us in April. Renee defines diversity as “the mix” and inclusion as “getting the mix to work well together”. Diversity and inclusion practices are a key component of every company culture and sometimes we don’t even realize where our own hidden biases come from or when they are coming out to play. Renée had us working on our own identities and our ‘front seat dimensions’. Renee also talked about cognitive diversity and how the organization and individuals benefit from leveraging the full potential of people’s uniqueness. Thank you, Renée for delivering such a thought-provoking and insightful session that I believe is a must for every organization to engage in!
