Webinar enrollment: The Science of Active Inclusion, March 25, 2022 at 11-12 (EET)


Invitation-only webinar: The Science of Active Inclusion

Inclusion is a high priority for many companies, but new research suggests initiatives to improve it tend to have the opposite effect.

Our invitation-only Diversity & Inclusion webinar The Science of Active Inclusion is for experienced People / Talent / Culture / D&I professionals. In addition to discussing NLI’s science-based point-of-view and practical experience on the topic, there will also be plenty of room for interaction between participants.

We will review industry insights around the inclusion challenge. Participants will explore how exclusion debilitated productivity, how inclusion efforts can backfire, and where organizational missteps are common.

After participating in the webinar, you’ll

  • Understand that if you’re not actively including, you’re probably accidentally excluding
  • Understand that inclusion is for everyone, and that inclusion is about the social behaviors that enable diverse teams to function
  • Understand how the brain detects and responds to threat, and how the experience of being excluded not only feels bad but negatively affect our cognitive capacity
  • Understand NLI’s SCARF® Model as a source of positive and negative signals for inclusion
  • Explore specific habits and actions of leading inclusively in daily situations
  • Know more about habit activation at scale


The webinar will be presented by Arto Miekkavaara and Eeva-Maria Poutanen from the NeuroLeadership Institute Finland.

Arto is especially intrigued by the quirks of the brain and the mind: how seemingly small changes can have a surprisingly large positive impact on performance, learning and succeeding together.

For years, Eeva-Maria has been interested in the essential D&I topics like power, advantage, wholeness and systemic change. She is thrilled to see that these topics are now getting more and more focus on the agendas of larger organizations.


Warm welcome!
