Venue: DLA Piper, Rådhuspladsen 4
Welcome: Gareth Garvey, BCCD and Marlene Winther Plas, Partner DLA Piper
Speaker: Angela Peacock of The People Development Team (PDT Global) on the subject Inclusion Delusion – The REAL Road to Change
Angie challenges the traditional perception of diversity, as being the morally right thing to do, to avoid litigation, or to tick boxes. Instead, she gave us her own approach to classic gender, race and cultural diversity.
She introduced a new definition of diversity – The Diversity of Everything – exploring ways to create environments where everyone with the capability to thrive and excel can do so.
She lead us inside ourselves to look at the personal values, beliefs, fears and judgement systems, that we believe keep us safe but which reinforce our behaviour. She demonstrated the depths of our own unconscious biases and the impact of everyday media, communication and personal relationships.
