Ways to share and learn more about Inclusion Nudges

Tinna Nielsen and Lisa Kepinski use Inclusion Nudges in their work with organizations, and also share the framework they developed of these techniques with the purpose of inspiring as many people as possible and creating a global sharing initiative. Designing these Inclusion Nudges is something everyone can learn and all internal agents of change ought to master. It has the capacity to profoundly change the way practitioners address Inclusion and Diversity.

Lisa and Tinna have shared the concept of Inclusion Nudges through many presentations, webcasts, learning labs, coaching, and consultancy. They have also authored a Guidebook explaining the concept and sharing real examples of Inclusion Nudges from their own work and from members of the Inclusion Nudges Global Sharing Community.

LEARN HOW TO DESIGN YOUR OWN INCLUSION NUDGES

Presentations & Learning Lab on Inclusion Nudges

This interactive learning lab is designed to help organisations move beyond awareness of unconscious bias. Awareness alone does not lead to cultural and behavioural change. To make it stick, a combined approach is needed on understanding, feeling, motivation, behaviours and rganization l processes.

Inclusion Nudges are relatively soft, nonintrusive mental pushes that will alter behaviours and help our brains make better decisions for a more inclusive rganization, and thus help your rganization reap the benefits of D&I on talent, innovation, market growth, global effectiveness and leadership. Examples of Nudges in everyday life, including the workplace, are provided; then we turn to key design principles of Nudges, and becoming a Choice Architect for Inclusion. We work with all three types of Inclusion Nudges discussed in our book. We apply the knowledge of bias and the nudging technique to your key rganization l challenges, barriers, practices, and procedures where bias may occur. Aimed at critical decision points, we teach you how to design your own bespoke Inclusion Nudges for your rganization to foster behavioural change for a more inclusive environment.

INCLUSION NUDGES: Practical Techniques for Behaviour, Culture, & System Change to Mitigate Unconscious Bias & Create Inclusive Organisations

In this guide, we introduce you to three types of Inclusion Nudges that have worked for us and for other practitioners. Using the employee life cycle and organisational culture as our framework, we have focused on the micro-decision points: the moments when we have an opportunity to outsmart our brain and prod it towards decisions more aligned with our stated intentions of inclusiveness. We’ve found that with a micro-intervention, such as an Inclusion Nudge, at these crucial points, we can generate macro changes in bias mitigation and create more inclusive cultures.

IDENTIFY BIASES

Organizational Culture Scans

Getting a neutral expert partner to help you look at your organizational challenges and barriers is an invaluable foundation for designing Inclusion Nudges. Our rigorous methodology tapping into quantitative and qualitative data to assess for bias, yields valuable insight for areas to target for Inclusion Nudges, as well as to incorporate into your I&D strategy and actions.

UNDERSTAND WHY

Workshops & Presentations on the Brain and Bias

Though we like to believe we are rational thinkers, nearly 90% of the time we’re actually relying on the automatic, subconscious system of the brain to make decisions. This automatic system evolved to ensure our survival; however, the world is vastly more complex today. The brain has to manage more than 11 million bits of information at any given moment, and shortcuts have evolved to accomplish this without using a lot of energy. In most cases it works, but in many other cases, errors in judgment are made, which are not registered in the conscious mind. Unconscious biased thinking is universal; more than 150 common biases have been identified to date. These may be in direct conflict with our intention to give people equal opportunities and make rational decisions rooted in inclusion. Having a grasp of how our brain processes information, human behavioral motivation factors, change techniques, and decision making is a crucial step for all organizations who want to become more inclusive.

However, awareness alone on UB is not enough! The difference with our approach to unconscious bias is that we don’t stop with awareness, but incorporate practical internal application examples and introduce the Inclusion Nudges approach. Our goal is to partner with you as you use Inclusion Nudges to Outsmart Your Brain.
