Unconscious Bias im Vertrieb… (k)ein Thema? Warum es absolut okay ist, Biases zu haben, aber wie man Schubladendenken überwinden kann, das habe ich gestern und heute gemeinsam mit meiner Kollegin Anna Engers und zwei großartigen Teams von Vodafone erforscht.

In a live talkshow with all German Dentons offices involved and impressive management presence I experienced the impact of a truly diverse speaker panel: Carmen Schön, Johanna Mühlbeyer, Albert Kehrer and myself contributed very different views on the same matter: diversity and how it works.
