Pre-Conference Workshop

DDI LeaderCon 2019

Creating an Inclusive Environment and the Role Virtual Reality Can Play

Monday, October 14 | 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

You're hiring for diversity, but is your culture inclusive? If not, you might not be reaping the benefits of your diverse workforce. This workshop moves past the numbers game of diverse representation to focus on learning and leveraging unique abilities, perspectives, styles, and ideas of each person. Stereotypes and unconscious bias are explored, as well as the differences in who we are, how we think, and what it means to an inclusive workplace. This workshop will help you lay out a personalized path for identifying, engaging with, and advocating for individuals whose voices must and should be heard. We'll then take a deeper dive into inclusion by using virtual reality to feel what it’s like to be excluded in the workplace. Following the virtual reality experience, learners can discuss their experiences and reflect on their points of view in a safe but thought-provoking facilitated discussion.
In this workshop, participants will:

  • Recognize biases and stereotypes that can affect workplace decisions
  • Identify those who've been excluded and invite them back to the table
  • Engage everyone and encourage their voices and contributions
  • Advocate for those with different perspectives and ignite their personal success
  • Experience an emotional understanding of workplace exclusion and discuss specific every day actions to be more inclusive

This workshop is intended for those who want to create an inclusive environment where people can participate and flourish.

This workshop has been certified by HRCI and SHRM for 3.5 CEUs.
