Diversity: Does Entrepreneurship Level the Playing Field?

“We have to deal with our biases so that we can interact with others who are different than us.”

Dyann McDowell, President of Training Marbles , Inc. speaks with host Mary McCarthy about diversity and subconscious biases in the workplace. Training Marbles offers training and consulting to businesses in the Midwest. A popular topic is diversity; teaching employees about bad behavior in the workplace, and how to get along with others not like them.

Examples of Protected Statuses:

 

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion or creed.
  • National origin or ancestry
  • Sex
  • Age
  • Physical or mental disability
  • Veteran status

 

“The one thing that enters the room for me, before I enter the room, is the fact that I’m African American. In a lot of ways, as an entrepreneur, I work much harder to get to the same place.”

What You Will Learn:

  • Better understanding of bias and how it affects your perceptions
  • Real examples of biases in the workplace
  • Preventative steps small business employers need to take to educate themselves and employees
