Difference is inevitable and healthy. It is also a baseline requirement for effective innovation. If we can perceive and interact with our differences in a positive manner, we will create comfortable spaces in which to learn, grow and be productive. Our Diversity programmes provide structured space to understand and appreciate the differences that exist in a small group, examine our internal unconscious bias, and practice interaction behaviours which extract maximum benefit from our difference. Allowing time to value our differences delivers many times more productive work relations.
