Bias and the Brain

Sue LangleyThe EEO Trust hosted a successful presentation Thursday 11th December in collaboration with psychology expert, CEO and Founder of the Langley Group & Emotional Intelligence Worldwide on Operationalising Diversity and Inclusion in New Zealand. This was an invitation only event attended by a number of EEO Trust member organisations keen to further their workplace diversity journey and learn more about managing unconscious bias and the benefits that can be gained be taking a different perspective.

 We took out some great ideas and were inspired by Sue’s tips around positive psychology and re-training the mind – so much food for thought! If you would like to find out more about this presentation and how we can deliver a customised version for your organisation from the top to bottom, then get in touch with our Diversity Manager, Fezeela Raza on 09 5804445 or fraza@eeotrust.org.nz.

Celebrating diversity in our own space

 rochard


Here at the EEO Trust we like to lead by example when it comes to workplace diversity and inclusion and that includes employing people of varying backgrounds, ages and abilities – all of whom bring something special to the workplace mix.

 

One such person is our Office Administrator Richard Mortensen, who recently celebrated 17 years of service to the EEO Trust. Richard suffered a serious brain injury as a result of a climbing accident in his early twenties, and as a result some of his physical abilities are limited. However, Richard has and continues to be a valued part of the EEO Trust team, working two days a week to help deliver key projects and contributing to the success of the organisation. Watch this space for more team member profiles coming soon!
