But what if that diversity is causing tension? What if inclusion and equity are slow on the uptake? Treating others with respect is paramount to a successful and inclusive workplace.
Addressing implicit bias takes time and considerable effort. It’s about making a more conscious choice about how you show up in the world.

Need a simple, visual way to understand and trigger discussions around implicit bias? This is just the tool for you!

It has to do with things like dress, customs, language, and beliefs.
The point of understanding the impact of diversity and being culturally competent by using the F.A.I.R.™ approach isn't just to ensure we'll all be nice to each other. Our organizations are in business to accomplish a task. And that takes the cooperation of employees and customers.
