Linkage Leadership Webinar
Leading through Difference – Kwame Jackson’s Journey towards Inclusion over Bias
May 23, 2019

Bias and difference are tricky subjects. People often want to downplay and sugarcoat difference–or avoid acknowledging it at all. To complicate matters, bias can be linked to prejudice, discrimination, hatred, and even acts of violence.
Yet, we all have personal stories that prove that when we acknowledge and honor difference appropriately, it can be a window into how we include and exclude others. And, it can help us become more aware and adept at leading across and through difference.
Join Kwame Jackson for an important conversation about mitigating bias and moving toward true inclusion in the workplace.
This free leadership webinar is presented by Linkage's Global Institute for Leadership Development (GILD).
During the webinar, Kwame will:
- Share his personal journey in corporate America and beyond, including insight into his global cultural immersion research, which has taken him nearly 60 countries
- Illustrate how a truly inclusive leader honors uniqueness and ensures a sense of belonging while maintaining the organization’s culture
- Offer a preview of Linkage’s Leading Across Difference session at the Global Institute for Leadership Development (GILD) and invite you to a deeper discussion with him and others in September!
