About the Webinar

If you manage others, you must understand social identity to be able to lead effectively in today’s world. And various aspects of identity — both your own and that of others — can be incredibly powerful because, as humans, we unconsciously categorize ourselves and others into groups along social identity lines. Understanding the various nuances and aspects of identity can help you spot situations when someone is unintentionally shutting down diverse perspectives or when actions are being taken that may be rooted in unconscious bias.
