About the Event
Nature Loves Diversity!
Nature loves diversity because diversity in nature leads to healthy ecosystems. We want diversity in our companies because that leads to stronger, healthier and more resilient systems.
People come in a variety of physical shapes and sizes, yet cultural conditioning has us automatically favoring some and judging others, often subconsciously. It’s not something we often talk or hear about from D&I leaders. That has real consequences for diversity.
Size, just like race, gender and ethnicity is an attribute of diversity.
- What are some of the ways we are conditioned to think about someone who is very short or very tall?
- What are some of the ways we are conditioned to think about someone who is very thin or very heavy?
- All of today's emphasis on diversity training with the promise of bringing awareness to unconscious bias never addresses body size or body shape, even though it is a diversity issue with significant impact.
Have you ever been treated a certain way based on your physical size and shape?
We will dive deeper into the topic of how our stories about body size and shape impact our ability to act in line with our commitment to diversity and we will share strategies to help you become more intentional about how you look at people.
Like Nature, we love diversity!
