Diversitets- og inklusionstræning

Cognitive diversity and unconscious bias

Collaboration in diverse teams reveals differences in expectations, working methods, ways of thinking etc., which can complicate the collaboration. But working in diverse groups also has great potential. Studies show that diverse teams have the potential to perform and innovate about 30% better than non-diverse teams.

Diversity in groups can, in other words, both be an obstacle and a competitive advantage for your organization or team.


It takes more than just setting a diverse group – it takes an inclusive mindset and inclusive leadership to achieve the DIVERSITY BONUS in the workplace, where you truly benefit from the cognitive diversity of your team members and the range of perspectives, creativity and innovation this offers.


In our Diversity and Inclusion workshop, you will gain new evidence-based knowledge about how diversity factors such as cultural background, gender, personality, professional background, age & more may add value to your team but also how diversity forms team member’s preferences.


We challenge your unconscious bias and support your journey from unconscious bias to consciously inclusive leadership/behaviour.


We will discuss how unconscious bias affect and shapes your behaviour and communication. To challenge your unconscious bias and implement new inclusive working methods is not a quick-fix, but during the workshop you will end up with strategies for on how to work with an inclusive mindset and attention to your own biases.
