Many 21st century employers recognise a diversity of perspectives and experiences is the only way to succeed in a rapidly changing global marketplace. It will handle workplace politics and retain your talent pool. However, even well-intentioned employees can overlook the unintended consequences; the ‘ripple effects’ of poor people decisions.

This presentation has been customised for online interaction with attendees in 35-40 minutes. It is often paired with either a panel discussion, or Q&A with Dr. Doyle-Morris.
Extending your positive ripple effect in tricky situations and within workplace politics
In the second session, Dr. Doyle-Morris embeds the learning further using the chat box with self-reflection exercises. This technique helps people engage further with the material; something she started in the first presentation. She’ll dig deeper to highlight how you can advocate better for yourself in the face of ‘equalities doubters’ and workplace politics.
