    Primary event: Diversity, Innovation and Bias

    This interactive talk will define Diversity and Inclusion and discuss how they link to innovation.   Diversity is about so much more than identity and we will explore Cognitive Diversity and how organizations can foster its institutionalization or fail to take advantage of its benefits.

    We will then look at what constitutes a well workplace – one that leverages all dimensions of Diversity -and the intersectionality of inclusion, Diversity and Innovation.

    Unconscious bias can be a barrier to well and inclusive workplaces and participants will explore their own biases and their impact on innovation.  Finally, we will share leading practice strategies for mitigating bias and enhancing innovation through inclusion.

    About CCDI

    We are a forward-looking social organization with research and learning woven into our DNA, tracing how people identify alongside demographic trends within the Canadian workplace to move employers from diversity to inclusion.

    Our mission is to help those we work with be inclusive, free of prejudice and discrimination – and to generate the awareness, dialogue and action for people to recognize diversity as an asset and not an obstacle.

    Our leadership came together from the corporate world with a shared goal of helping employers celebrate diversity and difference with a model that blends social impact and proven business tactics for inclusive work environments that mobilize the potential of individuals – and of teams.
