Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion With Robin Rosenberg

By People Leaders | People Leaders Podcast

Promoting and maintaining diversity, equity, and inclusion in a hybrid environment is challenging for leaders, especially during this time of COVID-19. To find ways out of this issue, we have Robin Rosenberg to discuss and share some tips on how to promote and maintain diversity, equity, and inclusion in an organisation.

She is CEO and Founder of Live in Their World, a company built to improve workplace culture. The company immerses individuals in workplace scenarios and teaches them DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) using virtual reality (VR) platforms.

Robin is also a psychologist, author, and mentor. She has combined her interest in immersive technologies with her coaching and clinical experiences to foster a deep understanding of how and why people might feel slighted or marginalised, and productivity and how to approach such interactions differently depending on the type of person.

Listen to her as she shares the importance of DEI in an organisation, how to promote DEI, best practices to take and receive feedback, counter the bias issues, etc. She also tells us about the phenomenon of the Mere Exposure Effect and how it impacts the workplace.
