Episode 18: A Sense of Belonging: Putting the "B" to Your DEI Strategy with Anu Gupta

The challenges we face in and out of the workplace - racial inequalities, racial biases, discrimination, etc. - all come down to one thing, known as bias.

In this week’s episode, we are going to talk about bias and we are joined by Anu Gupta, a scientist, educator, lawyer, and the Founder and CEO of BE MORE with Anu, an Edtech company that trains people in breaking bias to advance diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging (DEIB), and justice in workplaces and communities.

As a DEI practitioner, Anu discussed what is bias, where did it come from, his experience in tackling it, and the effective tools that he uses to help companies and organizations break the bias.

Anu also shared:

  • His first experience with bias and what led him to founding Be More with Anu

  • The effects of media-generated stereotypes and misinformation

  • What is Breaking Racial Bias and how it can help your DEI goals

  • The four components of systemic racism

  • (DEIB) Why belonging is essential and the ultimate outcome of DEI

  • How to identify biases in the workplace

  • Using the PRISM tools in addressing workplace bias

  • Seeking accountability and the reasons why companies and perpetrators are resistant to being held accountable
