The Sessions: Diversity by design

Using the latest discoveries and insights provided by neuroscience, join us for Diversity By Design – a workshop at The Space | 3FA on Monday 9th March from 1-5pm hosted by Katie Hart from Rhetonic in conjunction with Sir Robert McAlpine and Broadgate.

Learn how changes in design can lead to attracting greater diversity. The way different brains see the world, interpret their surroundings and engage with communications, is key to being able to attract and retain a more diverse workforce. This free event will be taking place from 1-5pm, reserve your place and join us for an informative and thought provoking afternoon.

Book your place here.

About the event

In this session, you will learn about the differences between brains and how to apply them to create an advantage for your organisation. The focus will be on how you can apply this knowledge within your Marketing, Communications and HR functions to get radically different results from those you have achieved in the past.

The session will include:

  • Introduction to neuroscience and neuromarketing - background, physiology, etc
  • Outlining the issues – the scale, nature and opportunities provided by being more gender inclusive
  • Focus on ‘inside out’ instead of ‘outside in’ – how our brains shape us
  • Unconscious bias and the role our subconscious plays
  • Not all brains are the same – neurodiversity
  • The Achievement/Utopian brains spectrum
  • Key elements of each and how they are relevant to organisations, especially HR, marketing and comms
  • Looking at good and bad examples of content, adverts, materials
  • Practical applications – what can we do differently, today?

Education Engaging young people to feel connected with the changing Broadgate campus, following their journey from age 6 to 16 and inspiring them to considering a career in construction and the built environment.

Business Supporting local businesses to grow the supply chain of the future whilst also supporting and upskilling them to become competitive in the marketplace.
