Open Minds Video

Following our successful inclusive leadership program with UK Power Networks, our partners The Edge Picture Company worked with our client to produce a short film

The film highlights the main prejudices within the workplace ageism / sex / sexuality / race / religion, and reminds people to have watch their actions before they act.

Diversity and inclusion is seen as an important driver of success at UK Power Networks, but there are barriers to their people acting inclusively. One of the biggest is also one of the hardest to address – unconscious bias (UB). They want their people to be mindful of their bias, and take steps to avoid acting on it.
