A new approach to gender diversity is needed in our society and in our organizations. Despite many “diversity initiatives” advancement in women’s leadership continues to be stalled. People in the field are stumped about what to do. This is an issue for all of us, women and men alike, for until we live in a world where the feminine and masculine are balanced and equally valued, we are deprived not only of half the voices on our planet, but also silence the feminine voice within each of us. And it is this feminine voice that houses our `values of inclusion’ which supports appreciation of all other forms of diversity and differences.
This session provides the space and structure for a community exploration of how the Enneagram can contribute to fostering inclusion and gender diversity. The first part of the session focuses on individual and small group explorations of how aspects of the Enneagram offer new perspectives on unconscious bias. In particular, we’ll work with a presence-based approach to the 3 centers of intelligence. The second part of the session entails a large group conversation, informed by the principles of Bohmian Dialogue, to excavate our collective intelligence and generate new insights.
