Workplace Essentials – Gender Inclusion

Challenging non-inclusive behaviour

Learning Objectives

Challenging non-inclusive behaviours involves a set of steps that will help you start these important conversations and foster an inclusive work environment.

  • Learn to observe and identify a broad range of non-inclusive behaviours
  • Apply techniques to challenge a non-inclusive behaviour

This scenario has been co-developed with Interact, an award-winning London-based training consultancy specialised in experiential learning.


The Scenario

You're meeting 2 colleagues, Sam and Sophie, to catch up on a project you've been working on together for a while.

Amy's contribution is stellar whereas David is running a bit late on a couple of things. Rather than owning up to it, he's attacking Sophie, using a variety of tactics from sexism hints to full-on bullying.

Your first task is to observe and identify Sam's behaviour. Then, face-to-face with him, you will have to challenge his attitude and make him reflect on it so that he can transform his relationship with Sophie.

This module is part of our Workplace Communications Essentials series.
