Covering is a strategy people use to downplay a stigmatized part of their identity. People and groups cover because they believe they need to in order to feel included at work, to fit in with prevailing social norms and to avoid potential stigma, people minimize differences with their coworkers. While at the same time, people can be consciously committed to equality, and work deliberately to behave without prejudice, yet still possess negative prejudices or stereotypes.
This webinar highlighted how to recognize unconscious stereotypic thinking in yourself and others and how to develop inclusive leadership skills that increase team innovation and organizational citizenship, allowing for everyone to bring their full self to work.
