Building Empathy in the Workplace | Online Workshop

When:  Sep 20, 2023 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (NZST)

Sep 20, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM (NZST)

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) professionals are often tasked with promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within organisations, but they will only be successful if they have a deep understanding of the complex systems and structures that perpetuate inequity.

These systems can include policies, procedures, culture, and norms that shape how an organisation operates and how individuals interact with one another.

A systems change mindset allows DEI professionals to take a holistic view of an organisation and identify the interconnected factors that contribute to inequity.

By examining these systems, they can identify the root causes of inequity and develop targeted strategies to address them, rather than simply addressing symptoms or individual incidents of discrimination.

The learning objectives of this workshop are:

•    Define systems change within a DEI workplace context.
•    Understand what mindset is required for systems change.
•    Practice this mindset using a simple iceberg model.
