In today's episode of Lean Into You, we talk with Rebecca Slaby, the Executive Director of Amazeworks. In this two part conversation we will talk about how directors can create a culture of belonging through anti-bias training. In part one, we will cover:
1) What biases are and some of the misconceptions surrounding having a bias
2) The difference between creating a safe space and creating a brave space
3) What it means to call someone in versus calling someone out
4) How the core of this conversation stems from understanding intent versus impact
