Dealing with diversity, and being an inclusive facilitator

In this podcast I talk to Sunita Sehmi about being an inclusive facilitator, and also about how we can deal with sensitive topics like diversity, both as facilitators but also as a learning topic in itself.

I mention the concept of faceblindness in the podcast, and then saw this article on faceblindness in The Guardian, so thought I’d provide the link here so that you can see I didn’t just make it up.

Sunita also mentions the article Do you feel my pain? Racial group membership modulates empathic neural responses
