Let’s talk about leadership takes a look at some of the key barriers restricting BME professionals from attaining leadership positions and responsibilities in their workplace. In the second part of this series, we will discuss Unconscious/Subconscious bias and limiting behaviours. This frank discussion promises to have a positive impact. Dial in to listen and to share your views and experiences.

The discussion tomorrow which will be hosted by Dr Roy Bitrus will be seek to address the following questions/issues:

  • What factors hinder the progress of professionals of BME origin?
  • How can we identify and deal with microaggressions that commonly occur in the work place?
  • What impact do these micro-aggressions have on work culture and can they undermine efforts to ensure diversity in management/executive roles ?
  • In what ways can confirmatory, affinity and social comparison bias be debilitating?
  • What impact do limiting behaviours such as “below the line thinking”, “resistance to change” and “doubt of one’s self and instincts” have on the emergence of a leader?
