Learn how to effectively communicate to senior leaders how barriers to inclusion can impact productivity and profitability. 

Have you ever wondered what barriers get in the way of your employees being engaged in their work and their teams? While studies have found that employee engagement is closely linked to an employee’s ability to drive product or service innovation, how to keep employees invested and focused is a mystery. During this session, we will watch a live simulation of the micro-inequities — the subtle gestures, comments, and body language — that often erode employee confidence, interest, enthusiasm and self-esteem. Through group exercises we will discuss strategies for identifying and removing barriers to inclusion.
