This fall, we will welcome hundreds of high-performing leaders to Palm Desert, California for Linkage’s Global Institute for Leadership Development® (GILD). I am proud to bring you a sneak peek of some of the thought leadership we’ll be sharing at GILD during our next Linkage Leadership Webinar.
Join us on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. ET for Leading through Difference – Kwame Jackson’s Journey towards Inclusion over Bias.
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.
Register now to join Linkage and Kwame Jackson for an important conversation about mitigating bias and moving toward true inclusion in the workplace.

During #LinkageGILD, Kwame will empower the “Learning Through Difference” Learning Team to examine the important topics covered at GILD through an inclusion lens, through expert guidance and advice. He will also appear on the main stage as part of “Leading Across Difference: Unique Leadership Journeys,” during which he will help us examine the seen and unseen differences in the workplace–and share how we can embrace, celebrate, and lead through difference to empower truly effective teams.
