What you’ll learn—and why it matters

How to Strengthen Your Decision-Making

Discover the latest evidence from the mind sciences on mind hacks and practical strategies to prevent biases from affecting your interactions and decisions.

You will learn how to make unbiased decisions, inspire others, and be a powerful role model for everyone around you.

Best Practices for Inclusive Leadership

Organizational research from Harvard Business School and others converge on one key point: The foundation for a positive DEI climate is also the key differentiator of high-performing teams.

You will learn the essential factors that create the foundation for success in reaching all your strategic objectives.

How to Leverage the Benefits of Diversity

Diversity in a positive DEI climate improves decisions, outcomes, and organizational resilience. Yet, people find it very difficult – even threatening – to work with people who are different from them.

You will learn best practices for positive outcomes when experiences, world views, and perspectives differ.
