Ability matters. But—here’s the catch—so does diversity. Join Scott Page for The Power of Diversity, a live, interactive, 60-minute webinar that will provide new insights into how to use diversity to improve an organization’s predictions, decisions, and problem solving capabilities.
Moving beyond the politics that cloud standard debates about diversity, Scott will discuss why difference beats out homogeneity, whether you’re talking about citizens in a democracy or scientists in the lab, and why diversity trumps ability. He examines practical ways to apply diversity’s logic to a host of problems, and offers surprising examples, from the redesign of the Chicago “El” to the truth about where store our ketchup.
This presentation links to smart mobs, wise crowds, identity diversity, globalization, and interdisciplinary science . . . The same logic that shows how cognitive diversity improves the performance of a predictive market can show how including identity diverse—and experientially and vocationally diverse—people improves the performance of a problem-solving team. Join in the discussion on February 15 and hear more about improving collective performance and decision making through diversity.
