As we work to build a more diverse, inclusive and innovative environment within the publishing industry, the critical first step is to identify and interrupt biases—in particular, unconscious biases. When we know how to interrupt and address biases, our workplaces are more inclusive, and our teams are happier, more engaged, and are better positioned to target diverse markets.

In this highly practical session, Ritu will draw on the latest neuroscience and leadership research to explore how discomfort with differences manifests within the publishing industry. Ritu will identify how to address challenges that arise when working across cultural differences with team members and authors, and provide strategies for becoming more inclusive and culturally competent when working across cultural differences.

Make sure you don't miss this talk! A recording will not be provided after the conference.
