This recorded webinar explores who is most like us in our team, how do we invite a range of views to inform good quality decisions and which perspectives might be missing? What can we do to be more inclusive?

You will learn practical skills and leverage best practices to recognise and challenge bias in decision-making, use inclusive language, develop, and champion a workplace culture that values difference by accessing diversity of thoughts, perspectives and experiences.
