How Understanding Personality Can Promote Diversity and Inclusion

It is well-known that there is significant underrepresentation of women and minorities at senior levels in the workplace. Approximately 25% of directors are women and just over 10% are non-white (compared with around 50% and around 40% respectively in the population, according to the US census bureau).

What is less well-known is how attitudes about differences in personality type can make this situation worse. In this webinar, John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at The Myers-Briggs Company, will use data from 1.7 million people to:


  • Show how undervaluing particular aspects of personality can contribute to underrepresentation

  • Discuss how MBTI® practitioners are uniquely positioned to help address these issues

  • Outline specific actionable steps that can be implemented on an organizational level
