How can we combat bias in the workplace and support the wellbeing of minority groups?
As many organisations, including schools, grapple with this question, it is important to acknowledge and address the impact that discrimination and micro-incivilities have on minority groups in the workplace. Join us for a timely conversation with Professor Binna Kandola OBE, author of the new book Free to Soar, Race and Wellbeing in Organisations. Professor Kandola will examine how being on the receiving end of racist behaviour, and feeling unable to voice concerns with confidence affect the wellbeing of minority groups and outline what we can do to ensure all employees feel included, supported and valued.
This event is the first UK instalment of our Facing History Now: Conversations on Equity and Justice series. Learn more here.
Professor Binna Kandola OBE is a Business Psychologist, Senior Partner and co-founder of Pearn Kandola. Over the past 35 years, he has worked on a wide variety of projects for public and private sector clients both in the UK and overseas.
As well as leading the practice, Binna is particularly interested in the study of gender bias and unconscious bias in organisations. He is the author of three new and critically acclaimed books on these subjects – The Invention of Difference: The Story of Gender Bias at Work, The Value of Difference: Eliminating Bias in Organisations, and Racism at Work: The Danger of Indifference. His most recent book, Free to Soar: Race & Wellbeing in Organisations, which he edited, explores the relationship between race and wellbeing in the workplace.
