    Diversity of Thought

    Presentation on the very latest developments in Diversity and Inclusion.  You’ll learn what’s going on the brain when we do what comes naturally - discriminate.  It’s what your brain at its very essence is designed to do.  After this presentation, you’ll understand the recent deadly events in Dallas, Baton Rouge and too many others to name.

    You’ll be able to use knowing how the brain works to make your organization understand and appreciate diversity of thought.  Then you’ll be able to start building the bridges necessary to really include everyone in your operation and thereby become more efficient and profitable.
