Stop the Madness!
A Practical Guide to Navigating Workplace Bias
In this interactive and motivational webinar Buki Mosaku, Workplace Bias Navigation Expert shows why too many well-meaning, yet fundamentally flawed celebrated activists, academics and consultants are misdirecting corporates’ efforts to address career stifling unconscious workplace bias and creating more problems than solutions!
Buki has cracked the code for calling out unconscious bias to stop it in its tracks. After personally training and observing thousands of professionals across the world, London-based Buki, founder of DiverseCity ThinkTank, has developed a powerful methodology, set out in his latest book, I don’t Understand? A Practical Guide to Navigating Bias in the Workplace.
The basic premise is simple: Traditional corporate training solutions tend to follow the counterproductive model of Guilty Perpetrator v Hapless Victim. Buki will explain why this approach is unproductive and counter intuitive.
Even better, he will change the way you as an individual, team or organisation think about workplace bias and show us:
How to Think, What to Say, When to Say it and The Way to Say it, so that we can build more cohesive and productive teams by putting career stifling, conflict generating workplace bias behind us once and for all!
This includes Q &A.

October is Black History Month and its purpose is to celebrate achievements and innovation contributing to the political, social and cultural development of the UK.
Last year Aston Lark celebrated Black History Month by covering a range of inspirational individuals throughout history. This year, we want to reflect on our industry, why diversity and black talent is so important to us, what the situation is currently, and how we can help bring more talent to the business through hiring and developing black talent.
We’re delighted to be teaming up with Buki Mosaku, founder of DiverseCity Think Tank and author of forthcoming book, ‘I Don’t Understand – A Practical Guide to Navigating Bias in the Workplace’. Buki will be delivering a training session for staff on 15th October discussing the history of under-representation of black minorities in senior roles in insurance and other white-collar professions, and sharing practical skills and strategies for staff and leaders to navigate workplace bias to bridge the minority gap in senior roles.

April 21: ShowMe50 Lean In Circle Leadership Development Power lunch: I don’t understand?
Bias Navigation and Sales Training Expert Buki Mosaku has cracked the code for calling out unconscious bias to stop it in its tracks. After personally training and observing more than 50,000 professionals across the world, London-based Buki, founder of DiverseCity ThinkTank, has developed a powerful methodology, set out in his latest book, I don’t Understand? A practical guide to navigating bias in the workplace.
The basic premise is simple:Traditional corporate training solutions tend to follow the counterproductive model of Guilty Perpetrator v Hapless Victim. Buki will explain why this approach is unproductive and counter-intuitive. Even better, he will present a more effective model and train us on the five steps to navigating unconscious gender bias:
1. Mindset: leave baggage at the door
2. Benefit of the doubt and DDE (dispassionate developmental enquiry)
3. Call out the problem not the bias
4. Don’t deviate from a DDE line of questioning
5. Collaboratively agree on a solution for accountability
This 45-minute Power Lunch will leave you ready to handle the next uncomfortable and frustrating bias encounter at work.

As Harrison Holgate’s D&I advisor, having researched in depth I found disparity in interview or career feedback given from male senior managers to their female team vs male.
The results of a review of feedback from 146 mid-career leaders showed that “feedback provided to women tended to be less actionable and less useful for leadership progression than feedback given to men, making it less likely that women advanced to more senior positions.”
