How will Brexit affect the diversity challenge in your organisation?

Binna Kandola OBE examines how the impact of the referendum, and how the subsequent debates, affect D&I in your organisation. This seminar pays close attention to the issue of bias.

There is no doubt that we’ve come a long way since the days when 60% of employed black women worked as domestic servants, or since 44% of white people said they would relocate if a black family moved in next-door. However, Brexit has been linked to a sharp increase in prejudice and a rise in racial discrimination and intolerance. Not only that, there are more and more examples of organisations being accused of unconscious bias or even more obvious acts of racist behaviour.

This seminar will look at how the Brexit campaign was at risk of emotionally biased judgements. Our views were formed by those around us experts, friends and family, and the community at large. Emotion and bias were an inevitable part of decision making process – indeed, being biased is part of being human.

After this seminar you will be able to:

  • Understand how bias plays out.
  • Look at your diversity and inclusion strategy in the face of Brexit.
  • Make your organisation more diverse, by learning from the examples of others.
  • Take a proactive approach to these issues within your organisation.
