Moving beyond being new

Notes & Ideas

  • Employee bias toward those who you know/CFAs
  • We need to talk about this move- we know there is an issue.
  • Awareness of your bias
  • This can’t be forced
  • Newcomers- someone who can introduce you

Questions

  • How do we break from the comfort zone (employers)
  • How do we share success stories of employers who do hire without bias?
  • How to embrace change?

Actions

  • Business Mentors
  • Neighbour Festivals - move from new to neighbour
  • Identify that immigrants are just like “us” - we share the same problems (human problems”
  • Have your own “immigration ambassador”, a champion to introduce the “newcomer”
  • Buddy systems.
