According to research, leaders play a crucial role in promoting psychological safety in diverse teams, with up to a 70 percentage point difference in employees’ sense of belonging and psychological safety. Psychological safety has been identified as a key factor in high-performing teams, as highlighted in Harvard Business Review and Google’s 2017 study on high-performing teams.

Diverse and inclusive workplaces offer numerous benefits, including uncovering new opportunities that may not have been apparent otherwise. Leaders can take practical steps to create a more inclusive culture, such as encouraging open communication and providing training on diversity and inclusion topics.

The panelists for the event include Dr. Janet Ahn, Chief Behavioral Science Officer at MindGym, who specializes in helping organizations build positive work cultures through behavioral science research, and Nate Bennett, Senior Vice President Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer at Comerica Bank. The event is priced at $60 per attendee with complimentary self-parking available at the venue.

In conclusion, this panel discussion provides an opportunity for leaders to learn about the importance of promoting psychological safety in diverse teams and how they can create a more inclusive workplace culture today. The event will also discuss the business case for DEI initiatives and provide practical steps that leaders can take to measure their impact.
