Why

Learn how unconscious bias develops, how to manage your own bias, tips for inclusive language, common offensive terms, and alternatives.

The Diversity Movement helps organizations integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies into the core of their businesses. By approaching diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives with a business mindset, The Diversity Movement shows teams how to use DEI practices to drive growth, improve recruiting, and enhance their culture.

Join AMA Triangle, Chris Herndon and Dr. Florence Holland, of The Diversity Movement, for the second of three workshops on defining our own unconscious and conscious biases. You will participate in bias exercises, reflect on the different types of bias, and understand the business impact of unconscious bias.

“The Impact of Unconscious Bias” will provide attendees with an understanding of how unconscious bias develops, and ways to manage unconscious bias. You will learn the six rules of inclusive language, and finally, explore common terms that can be considered offensive and what to say instead.

The Diversity Movement

The Diversity Movement was founded in late 2019 by Jackie FergusonDonald ThompsonKurt MerriweatherSharon Delaney McCloud, and Kaela Kovach-Galton. We started with research and studying other organizations, as well as digging into the true business value of DEI programs. What we found was astounding. DEI goes beyond the obvious benefits to a company’s culture and our society, and actually drives better business results. Companies with diverse management teams typically have 19% higher revenue. Global gross domestic product could increase by 26% if companies diversified their workforces by gender.

We earned our Certified Diversity Executive (CDE) credentials and became North Carolina’s exclusive provider of this certification (along with the Certified Diversity Professional credential) to help others learn how to successfully implement DEI to drive business results.

But we also wanted to help those looking for less-intensive DEI training. TDM’s five-module course, Diversity: Beyond the Checkbox is the result of more than 1,000 hours of research, training, feedback, and testing. It seeks to move modern businesses beyond the simplistic idea of diversity as a checkbox and into a truly inclusive culture that acknowledges and respects each person’s unique perspectives and experiences. It also dives into the detailed business benefits of DEI and how to implement a successful program.

Successful DEI implementation requires research, measurement, strategy, and a voracious appetite for ongoing learning. But the data proves, time and again, that DEI is worth the effort, making a powerful impact on profitability, talent acquisition, employee retention, and team problem solving. It also makes a human impact, helping ensure that every team member has a chance to unlock their best work.
