HR Meetup | Equality & Diversity with Your People Potential (CB)
Is your organisation ready to talk about workplace taboos?
Here at The ONE Group, we're passionate about wellbeing. In order to allow your organisation to open up about important mental health and wellbeing topics - our quarterly HR meetups are back for 2019. We have partnered up with Your People Potential to engage in discussions on topics such as mental outlook, diversity, female & male employee lifecycle.
Equality & Diversity
The workplace should be somewhere everyone feels valued and respected. This can be undermined by a lack of understanding of the impact of our behaviours on others, by being scared of saying the wrong thing and by ‘in-group’ mentality at work.
This session will explore how unconscious bias informs our decision making, how fear of saying the wrong thing leads to conflict and the link between wellbeing and equality.
Jacqui started her career in HR in 2001, becoming fully CIPD qualified in 2005. Working mostly in the software industry, her HR experience covered building new teams, merging teams post-acquisition, setting up short-term international assignments and implementing job-sharing programmes across international borders.
While working in HR, Jacqui trained in Cognitive Therapy and NLP. After graduating in 2009 as an NLP Master Practitioner, she set up her own successful therapy business with private clients in Cambridge.
During this time, Jacqui became aware that wellbeing was moving up the business agenda – but realised there was a lack of clarity and support for HR professionals to understand how to address mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. So, in 2013, merging her therapy and HR training, she set up Namasté Culture to help organisations align their wellbeing strategies with their business goals.
