Webinar: Tips and Tools to Eliminate Barriers and Biases to Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
September 29, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDTFREE
It is no secret the security industry is a majority white male. Even with increasing diversity and inclusion discussions and initiatives, many organizations are not seeing an increasing inequality. Those who have succeeded are seeing financial awards according to a Mckinsey study, as gender-diverse companies are 15% more likely to outperform their competitors and that number increases to 35% when ethnically diverse. This hour webinar will:
• Provide knowledge of different barriers to diversity and inclusion
• Review the most common types of biases in the workplace
• Raise awareness of biases in our roles and self
• Examine how to minimize biases and overcome barriers
• Increase diversity and inclusion in the industry if put into practice
