Rewire: A Radical Approach to Tackling Diversity and Difference

Pooja Sachdev: LinkedIn>>

Rewire: A Radical Approach to Tackling Diversity and Difference  takes a fresh look at the issue of equality, diversity and inclusion at work. It critiques current thinking and practices that are responsible for slow progress, while presenting a new, holistic and tactical perspective that leverages what we know about influencing and changing people’s mind-sets.

For sustainable positive change, we need to focus not only on monitoring policies and metrics, but on overcoming unconscious bias and creating a culture of openness, empathy and inclusion – which in turn enables corporate strategy and drives innovation.

This workshop will introduce a structured, six step approach to culture change. It will focus on the role of imagination and how we can shift mindset through the use of positive intentional communication in order to instigate positive change at an individual, organizational and social level.
