With 20 years of experience working in equity and inclusion, Asif advocates for a long-term process of culture change, providing examples of ways to effect change such as a series of “equity and inclusion workouts” and the enhanced benefits of experiential learning.
Asif shares his thoughts on conscious inclusion, using our privilege to create equity for people from different socio-economic backgrounds, and the evident business case for equity and inclusion at work.
With a wonderful call to action, Asif leaves us each with a simple task, that could lead you to a new experience – a new restaurant, or night out perhaps – make sure you listen to the end not to miss it!
Here’s a snapshot of a few things we talked about:
[3:40] Creating a culture of inclusion – delivering a “Workout” series
[6:15] The Entertainment Industry and the opportunity for fair and authentic representation – matching external and internal approaches
[10:30] Unconscious bias, being consciously inclusive and the day-to-day opportunities using experiential learning
[18:15] Asif’s passion for creating equity for people from different socio-economic backgrounds and using our privilege to drive change
[24:40] Customer engagement – the evident business case for equity and inclusion – not working on equity and inclusion is no longer an option
[27:20] An action for you - write down your 5 closest friends… Equity & Inclusion can’t just be at work.
