In today’s culture where “I” matters most and our own self-interests has become king, are we really taking the time to peer through our little bubbles and comfort zones to understand the people around us? How far are we from being appropriately inclusive, be it noticeable or subtle, or is diversity and inclusion (D&I) just another checklist at the workplace and with friends?

Here’s why we should be concern:

  • Harvard Business Review indicates that 78% of employees said they work at organisations that lack diversity in leadership positions[1].
  • On the topic of alienating co-workers and team members, Harvard Business Review found that 78% said their commitment to the organization declined because of toxic behaviour[2].
  • Findings by Brandon Gaille saw that claims for disability benefits have climbed by more than 600% in some countries because of a lack of job opportunities. And in the UK, it is estimated that over 100 hate crimes are committed daily against individuals with disabilities[3].
  • In a survey by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), nearly 2 out of 3 workers aged 45 and older have seen or experienced age discrimination on the job. And among the 61% of respondents who reported age bias, 91% said they believe that such discrimination is common[4].

This year’s D&I flagship event will showcase three short feature films tackling subjects on toxic work environments, discrimination of disability and ageism – all of which are relevant and is a primary concern to the workforce in Singapore. SCCA, will focus on the topic of ego-centrism, how such characteristics has taken root in our lives and the impact it has made to our society and the world.

Join us on 6th February 2020 at (venue tbc) as we unveil house conversations and bring forth “I” in real life inclusiveness.
