THOUGHT-LEADERSHIP EVENTS & SOCIALS

Vancouver’s leading event series in the People & Culture ecosystem.

The ReFrame Group hosts monthly thought-leadership events and socials in Vancouver and various locations across the Lower Mainland.

The purpose of these events is to give back to the People & Culture eco-system and the many other professionals who attend. We aim to inspire individuals to return to their respective workplaces feeling empowered and motivated to create change. These sessions also provide an opportunity for local thought-leaders to give back to the business community and help others learn from their journey.

The ReFrame Group events & socials provide a unique space where great people can connect on a regular basis. We look forward to seeing you at our next one!

Diversity Without Division – with Irshad Manji

 

Join The ReFrame Group and New York Times best-selling author, Irshad Manji – founder of Moral Courage College – for a discussion around how to practice diversity without division and fostering an inclusive culture through her Moral Courage Method.

A fireside chat with Irshad Manji on practicing diversity without division and fostering an inclusive culture.

The phrase is everywhere: “Diversity and Inclusion.” To our pattern-seeking brains, it suggests that diversity comes before inclusion. Wrong. Behavioural science confirms that a culture of inclusion must be fostered at the same time. That’s because everybody from “people of colour” to “straight white guys,” progressives and conservatives, younger and older, need to trust that they’ll be treated with respect under the banner of diversity. In the absence of trust, differences plant seeds of defensiveness — and, ultimately, division.

So how do we practice diversity without division? Enter Irshad Manji, founder of Moral Courage College and The New York Times bestselling author, most recently, of Don’t Label Me. Irshad will offer core insights for fostering a culture in which people engage effectively across lines of difference rather than labeling, shaming, or cancelling each other. Her Moral Courage Method works online, too, thanks to an iron-clad law of human psychology that she’ll reveal.

Ideas to be explored:

  • What Moral Courage means and why it’s key to unifying people in polarized situations
  • When diversity is being practiced honestly and dishonestly
  • How to reconcile free speech and social justice, not in theory but in real life
  • Who the coolest-ever role model of Moral Courage is (handy for teaching your kids)
  • Where to begin if you want to role-model Moral Courage
