Don’t Miss Thursday’s Webinar | Leading through Difference – Kwame Jackson’s Journey towards Inclusion over Bias

May 21, 2019 Rachael Marangu

How can we become more adapt at leading through and across difference?

Our next Linkage leadership webinar, presented by the Global Institute for Leadership Development® (GILD), is designed to answer this important question.

Join us this Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. ET for Leading through Difference – Kwame Jackson’s Journey towards Inclusion over Bias.

Bias and difference are tricky subjects. People often want to downplay and sugarcoat difference–or avoid acknowledging it at all. To complicate matters, bias can be linked to prejudice, discrimination, hatred, and even acts of violence.

Yet, we all have personal stories that prove that when we acknowledge and honor difference appropriately, it can be a window into how we include and exclude others. And, it can help us become more aware and adept at leading across and through difference.

Register now to join us for an important conversation about mitigating bias and moving toward true inclusion in the workplace.
