    How do leaders create a bias-free workplace that is rich with diversity? The first most important step is to ensure that your leaders approach team-building by leveraging an attitude of inclusivity.  Without this, little progress can be made and your company is left vulnerable.

    Join us on Thursday May 27th  to learn simple and effective ways to transform your workplace culture into a space where everyone contributes in meaningful ways and your organization thrives.

    Our speaker will share her experience and insights to building the kind of inclusive culture you know your organization can have. You’ll learn:

    1. How inclusion impacts the bottom line.
    2. The research of why current DEI training is counter-productive 
    3. Why we start at the basics and not tackle supremacy and antiracism as a first topic. 
    4. Why do diverse perspectives matter for your company's future?
    5. The importance of psychological safety for performance and innovation.



    About Our Speaker:


    Myra LalDin

    Myra LalDin, a graduate of Harvard University and regular advisor to MIT, began her career consulting in organizational behavior with a focus on inclusion & global competency. Myra quickly identified a problem: despite commanding $8 billion in annual spending, organizational Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) training was largely ineffective for–and sometimes counterproductive to–actually changing behavior.

    Myra believes in the power of stories to create empathy, shape values, and share experiences. Working at the intersection of inclusion and technology, Myra founded VR Perspectives and applies her background in business management and cognitive science to build immersive experiences in virtual reality (VR) that allow users to stand in someone else’s shoes and see the world from their perspective.
