Building a Starting Point for DEI&B Strategy
Breaking the Bias is a starting point for diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging practitioners, leaders and enthusiasts who are asking themselves “How do I even get started with a strategy in my company?” Keep in mind that this strategy is less about checking the box on one-time trainings or initiatives that are meant to get more “likes” than make actual impact. You can start simple and small. This edition of our newly launched newsletter provides examples of how to get started.

Employee Resource Groups
One great way to start building a DEI&B strategy that involves your employees is to thoughtfully design and launch ERGs. Check out our ERGs 101 eBook for guidance.
Everyone learns in a different way. Any educational strategy must take this into account. As you build your DEI&B strategy, consider how you can meet your employees where they learn best and provide “mixed reality” options to be inclusive of everyone.
A Taste of Curiosity
Traditional unconscious bias trainings have, for the most part, been ineffective. This unique experience creates a safe space for a vulnerable conversation, using our natural curiosity of food and drink, that doesn’t point fingers and try to make you feel guilty. It level sets with everyone that we all have bias and forges a path forward for building curious and conscious behaviors that help us to positively express our biases.
Please help us spread the word as we work to build this incredible DEI&B community! Feel free to share this newsletter with colleagues and friends who share the passion that you do.
