Creating positive cultural change through Conscious Inclusion

What is conscious inclusion?

We all have biases which impact how we view the world around us, including at work. These biases are neither positive nor negative, but they can cause prejudice for or against one person or group and can impact on our decision making.

Conscious Inclusion sessions help those in core decision-making roles to unpack their biases, question assumptions and begin to develop a genuine, conscious appreciation of diversity in the workplace.

What does this mean for our leaders?

Helping our leaders and people managers to identify their biases and move towards consciously inclusive behaviour supports our three strategic diversity and inclusion priorities: Flexibility, Women in Leadership and Aboriginal Representation.

In December last year, the Transport Executive participated in a half-day Conscious Inclusion session. From March onwards, workshops will be offered to the Top 250 leaders across the cluster.
