Design for Worldview

/ Amy Lazarus

Amy Lazarus

Workshop

Think back on your life experience. How does it shape your view of the world? How does it determine with whom you interact and with whom you don’t? How might your worldview seep into the decisions you make at work? Created in collaboration with Stanford’s d.school, participants learn how to leverage their innate creativity to counteract their innate biases. Not your typical unconscious bias training, participants learn to recognize and address bias traps in their daily work and interactions. Learn to identify and address biases. Develop the skills to identify, address, and discuss biases at the individual and team level. This workshop is the perfect blend of research and science plus proactive tools to counteract bias and advance inclusion.
