Head of Digital Strategy and Innovation, Randstad
Introversion within Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging
Introverts account for 1 in 3 people, yet the unspoken and unconscious “extrovert ideal” leads to work environments in which introverts feel as if they don’t belong and where they earn and get promoted less than extroverts.
In this session, Glen will make the case for including introversion in diversity, neurodiversity, and inclusion efforts, and offer practical suggestions for creating environments in which introverts can bring their authentic selves to work.
