This discussion helped me challenge my way of thinking, which is essential to remain ahead of the game.
We don't have so much cultural diversity, but great on our unconscious bias. Would like ideas for bias for different departments as well.
Really enjoyed this presentation. I provide training on cultural diversity and competency and oversee our programs for special populations at my organization, so the information shared was very useful.
