Diversity and Inclusion Workshop
Diversity has become a buzzword in the workplace, but without inclusion, it's meaningless. Inclusion has to come from all sides, so it's essential that teams and individuals understand why diversity is good for everyone and how they can actively work the create inclusive environments. Whether that be diversity of culture, race, gender, sexuality, age, brain, educational background, etc. By exploring unconscious bias, and exploring their own biases and blindspots, individuals can practice self-awareness and begin to create an inclusive world where everyone thrives.
- learn how diversity and inclusion leads to better outcomes for people and the organisation;
- learn the difference between equity and equality;
- understand unconscious bias and explore their own bias; and
- learn how to proactively use their understanding to be allies in the workplace and community.
Your facilitator, Kit Hindin (they/them)
Kit is a professional facilitator and coach, having worked in the innovation, entrepreneurship and futures space with educators, executives and startups.
As a parent to two teenagers and someone who identifies as non-binary, they bring a unique perspective to this work. Kit grew up in a world where the term non-binary wasn't used, and now raises teenagers in a climate where it's just one of hundreds of new identities and terms.
With compassion and humour, Kit walks participants through the changing landscape, supporting understanding and allyship, shining a gentle light on unconscious bias and microaggressions and answering those hairy questions you may have been afraid to ask.

"This workshop was the perfect introduction as Kit patiently covered all aspects of non-binary life in Aotearoa. With positivity and insight, Kit shared their life experience while acknowledging the experience within our management team.
What Kit provided us with is a window into this world and the opportunity to become allies as part of our work at the CAB. Following on from this workshop my own eyes have been opened. I have shared the written material with all volunteers and spoken with them about the workshop. At least two volunteers have printed the material to share with their families; hoping for example, to provide support for close family who are puzzled by what they are experiencing. In addition, I have observed the binary nature of support offered and am in a position to kindly point out the potential for the inclusion of our nonbinary community here.
It is a great privilege to have learned from Kit. To use pronouns correctly, to provide clients with all options for their demographic record and to manaaki all clients with respect for their identity."
