Stereotypes, Lazy Brains & Unintentional Intolerance
Inclusion Insights answers these important questions:
Why is inclusion important?
Why is inclusion no longer just about doing the right thing?
Inclusion Insights: Stereotypes, Lazy Brains & Unintentional Intolerance features Steve Robbins, the innovative speaker / socio-scientist storyteller who coined the phrase Unintentional Intolerance. Did we mention he’s also very funny?
Why is it that in traditional diversity training, many people still feel left out? How about a new approach to diversity based on entertaining new ideas from different perspectives? How innovative would that be? This is Steve Robbins’ premise for his program: INCLUSION INSIGHTS: Stereotypes, Lazy Brains & Unintentional Intolerance.
Inclusion Insights is a powerful presentation of Steve’s latest thinking – why inclusion is important, why it’s about creativity and innovation, and not just doing the right thing.
USA Today wrote about Steve Robbins, “If you’re interested in more information on how you or your company can become more aware of your subtle biases and how to change them, consider Robbins’ work.”
The Inclusion Insights package includes:
DVD & CD-ROM format
1- DVD with all the videos, fully chaptered and optional English subtitles;
1- CD-ROM with the complete set of training materials. Comprehensive Leader’s Guide, Powerpoint and participant handouts, all in PDF format. Easy to use and print.
USB Flash Drive format
1- USB Flash Drive with all the videos and training materials (as above in CD-ROM). Easy to use and print.
The Learning Objectives of the DVD presentation
1. Examine how nice, well-meaning people engage in unintentional intolerance.
2. Recognize and understand how closed-mindedness and exclusion take place, and how to become more open-minded to new people and novel ideas.
3. Discover how everyday experiences shape our perspectives and influence our interpretations of the people and world around us.
If we can begin to understand it from that type of framework we can easily see how developing open-minded individuals and organizational cultures is the first stage of the “diversity journey” and how the work of “diversity and inclusion” can positively impact:
1. Creativity and innovation;
2. Employee engagement and enthusiasm;
3. Continuous learning and improvement.
The unique manner in which Dr. Robbins approaches issues of diversity and inclusion, along with his engaging and motivational style are just a few of the powerful reasons why organizations call on him.
One day last month, a friend and colleague asked me to take a look at a new diversity/inclusion video from SunShower Learning. “It’s called Inclusion Insights, he said, and I think it’s something special.” Wanting to do my friend a favor and knowing that SunShower has a reputation for producing quality diversity/inclusion products (most notably, Leslie Aguilar’s video Ouch!), I said yes and sat down one morning – coffee cup in hand – ready to view what I knew would be a solid product. Well, my friend had double-crossed me. He failed to tell me that once I started watching, I wouldn’t be able to stop. Simple in format – speaker and diversity-expert Steven Robbins speaking in front of a live audience – the video carries you along on its humor, cleverly presented insights, and carefully chosen metaphors. The end result is a product that imparts its message of inclusion in a way that any audience can hear, understand, and, most important, not resist. Click here to take a look, but be careful, your coffee might get cold.
