Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace

Research suggests that subtle forms of interpersonal discrimination such as microaggressions are as harmful as more overt expressions of discrimination.

Microaggressions are small, off-the-cuff comments that reflect assumptions about people based on some element of their identity. These seemingly benign comments, often appearing to be compliments or genuinely expressed questions are in fact unintentional expressions of bias and/or racism, sexism, ageism or other forms of discrimination. Unlike outright racism, sexism, homophobia they are generally not MEANT to cause offense.

Microaggressions can negatively impact careers as they are related to increased burnout and less job satisfaction and require significant cognitive and emotional resources to recover from. So, the reality is that microaggressions are not so micro in terms of their impact and can have significant financial and cultural costs for companies.

Our Inclusion Program is designed to help organisations embrace diversity and promote a safe and productive workplace.
