Episode Description

How do we know when we tip into an unconscious bias that excludes others? Do we use culture as the rationale? In the second show in a three-part series about culture in organizations with guest host Randy Chittum, we talk with Jackie Cranford about how unconscious bias is present in how we create culture. Join us as we talk with Jackie, adviser and talent strategist, about how culture may perpetuate some biases and how culture can also serve to interrupt the damage done by unconscious bias. We will revisit some of the topics addressed in last week’s episode, with Gerry McDonough, such as the “walking around definition” of culture and “how people survive, thrive, and fit in,” and get Jackie’s take on the subject. All of this, and more, will be discussed on November 21, 11am EST. Join Randy Chittum and Jackie Cranford for what promises to be an enlightening discussion.

Georgetown ITL Faculty

The faculty of the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University are multifaceted and diverse with respect to academic training, practical experience, expertise, and research interests. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the faculty is the community they have cultivated and the dialog they have advanced around leadership development and leadership coaching. Most of the original faculty members – those who helped establish Georgetown University’s leadership coaching program in 2000 – still teach and provide direction for leadership coaches and executive leaders, while new perspectives continue to evolve and inform our programs.

At the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University, the faculty are exploring new transformative models of leadership, work, and change that can transform individuals, organizations, communities, governments and the global society. Join them each week for exciting conversations about transformational leadership.
