About this talk

The term Culture has become a buzzword and lost meaning at most companies, making it entirely subjective. As a result, people have been using it (consciously or not) to perpetuate bias in the workplace. By creating clarity and common language, culture can be built to support DEI.

Session Takeaways

  • The way culture has been used has had a negative impact on DEI
  • The problem comes from incoherence in how people use the word leading to bias in implementation
  • Creating a common language is key to limiting the biases created by this issue
