Interacting with people from different races, genders, ages, nationalities and cultures is the norm whether at work, in our communities, or while traveling. While diversity is a reality, inclusion is a choice. Organizations are increasingly undertaking diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives as they understand the value of diversity. But what can we do on a personal level to develop the inclusive mindset needed to adapt and navigate our differences? Like any skill, developing an inclusive mindset is a habit that takes commitment and practice.

During this this session, CultureWiz owner and president Sylvia Gonner will share her proven method from years of practice working with people from around the world to help anyone unlock the power of an inclusive mindset. Come prepared to be transformed and become a champion for inclusion!


•    Understand the first rule of an inclusive mindset.
•    Learn three habits to become inclusive.
•    Adopt new behaviors to thrive in a diverse world.
