Listening Through the Noise:
4 Strategies That Disrupt
Bias & Prejudice
Organizations send powerful messages when they demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion that is fueled by action, not just rhetoric. One isolated keynote or IDEA training will not change organizational culture alone, and transformation only happens when individuals commit to disrupting their various levels of comfortability through ongoing learning opportunities.
“Noise” is a 4-part series where Tish strategically introduces 4 key approaches that help audiences distinguish and disrupt communication behaviors involving implicit bias, microaggressions and others that impede progress, rather than incite change. We all have biases, we know that. However, when we actually begin challenging traditions, paradigms, shifting behaviors, and building confidence through the noise of uncertainty, disunity, strained race relations, and economic downturns, it is often in complex controversy that positive change is imminent.
- Learn 4 key strategies that disrupt bias: Recognition, Acknowledgement, Mindfulness, and Acceptance
- Incite meaningful dialogue, respectful interruptions, and the sharing of perspectives that encourage constructive discourse to uncover and identify updated strategies for creating more inclusive spaces.
- Increase the recognition of biases, unproductive behaviors and more importantly, how to work towards eliminating them.
- Encourage a full commitment to completing this “mandatory” IDEA experience for all members of your organization, which demonstrates your organization's clear commitment to creating an environment in which everyone truly feels welcomed, informed and respected.
- Incorporate the frameworks of emotional intelligence and intercultural competency, which helps us go beyond what is (what’s been taught) to ameliorate our language, behaviors, knowledge, and traditions in a way that does not asphyxiate significant, meaningful progress.
