Our Diversity-Equity-Inclusion Policy is in Place But the Results are Underwhelming
Very Little Has Changed. Why is It So Hard?
Monday, November 26, 2018 from 1:00-4:00 pm, St. Paul, MN
Policies Alone Do Not Change Culture, People or Behavior
Creating a good DEI policy is hard work and an accomplishment. Successfully implementing the policy is a new level of challenge, often underestimated. Unexpected points of resistance can arise, conversations can be edgy, supporting structures or processes may be missing and addressing mental models or worldviews is rarely considered.
Every organization has a Worldview that operates largely beneath the surface and is unspoken. It influences your organization’s approach to diversity, equity and inclusion, staff relations and internal culture. And it contains blindspots that get in the way of policy implementation.
Worldview Intelligence is a Game Changer
Worldview Intelligence offers a structured approach and language to confidently address policy implementation. In this half day session, you will explore your organization’s DEI reality and discover how to use the WVI Six Dimensions Framework to illuminate blindspots and identify critical actions needed to achieve success in creating an inclusive and welcoming workplace.
“The Worldview Intelligence session was eye opening and thought provoking. I now have a way to identify and name the challenges we’ve been experiencing and I have key ideas to address them.” 2018 Dive-In Festival (Insurance Industry DEI conference) participant, Bermuda

WVI Address to MBA Students – A WVI Leadership Approach to Building Connections across Diversity
September 20, 2018
As a new cohort of local and International students come together for the 2020 Class of MBA students at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, an introduction to Worldview Intelligence and the WVI Six Dimensions Framework will help them make connections with each other, provide foundational information about worldviews, share brain and behavioural science research to understand the connection between worldviews and identity and why changing people’s minds (including their own) requires well thought out strategies rather than argument.

(Keynote) Filling in the Gaps with Blinders On: A WVI Leadership Approach to Building Trust and Relationship
September 21, 2018 – Oak Island Inn (Atlantica)
When considering diversity in the workplaces and unconscious barriers to success, WVI exposes assumptions often made automatically that are not always, or usually, accurate. Worldview Intelligence offers a way to understand how people come to see and experience the world the way they do, offers insight into why people behave, react and respond the way they do, especially when they or their views are challenged. The WVI Theory of Change planning model will be presented as a means to change the conversations or the nature of relationships.
Bermuda Open Enrolment
Challenges Contain Opportunities
September 24, 2018 – Argus Insurance
(Registration opens at 8:30; program from 9:00-4:00)
How successful is your organization in creating trust and building relationship?
When does your organization shine and when does it get stuck in the complexities of today’s business environments?
This is an invitation to come together to build new understandings and effective ways to work on key issues.
Worldview Intelligence provides new skills and knowledge to lead teams, organizations and collaborative partnerships through complexity, giving a competitive advantage.
WVI offers a structured approach, framework and language to confidently address increasingly diverse environments you may be encountering – at work, in community or elsewhere.
It does this by revealing the hidden dynamics that nourish conflicts and by opening the door for a new dialogue, changing your outcomes. It provides a different path to transform conflicts into potential avenues of cooperation.

Dive In Festival - Bermuda
A Worldview Intelligence Approach to Building and Strengthening Diversity and Inclusion in our Organizations
September 25, 2018
Worldview Intelligence Part 1: Worldviews and Their Impact on You, Your Relationships and Communication
In this 2-hour introduction to Worldview Intelligence, we will share where worldviews come from and learn why understanding the impact of worldviews offerss a strategic advantage. We will provide information on how worldviews impact behaviours when we are challenged by different (world)views and why people act to reinforce their views instead of changing them.
Part 2: How Your Organization’s Worldview Influences Your Approach to and Policies on Equity and Inclusion
In this 2-hour follow up session, organizational worldviews will be explored including how they impact internal operations and external relations and what their influence is on an organization’s approach to diversity and inclusion. We will show how the WVI framework can be used to illuminate blindspots and identify critical actions needed to achieve success in creating inclusive workplaces.
The Dive In Festival
This year’s Dive In theme is #time4inclusion. Last year, CEOs from across the industry pointed out that time is the biggest barrier to achieving inclusive cultures in their organizations. Dive In is helping insurance get fit for the future, highlighting the business case for diverse and inclusive workplaces and providing practical ideas and inspiration for how to bring about positive change.
In 2017, the festival attracted more than 7,000 people in 17 countries and 32 cities. It is believed this makes Dive In unique, as an international, sector-wide, concurrent D & I event.
