How the Attitudinal Qualities of Mindfulness Support DE&I
The workshop “How the Attitudinal Qualities of Mindfulness Support Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” addresses the importance of the application of mindfulness to a diversity, equity, and inclusion program. Mindfulness creates a more conducive environment for the successful creation of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. Research reflects that mindfulness reduces unconscious bias based on the attitudinal qualities of non-judgment, acceptance, patience, a beginner’s mind, trust, non-striving, letting go, gratitude, and generosity.
- Staying engaged through discomfort
- Avoiding judgment
- Recognizing shared vulnerability in common humanity
- Accepting the perceptions of others
