Maynard Institute Co-Executive Director Martin G.

The presentation titled Fault Lines: A Tool for Understanding Audience, Content, and Yourself will explore how social fault lines, such as class, gender, generation, race, geography, and sexual orientation shape all of us. They help to inform our biases and influence our relationships and perceptions. This session will introduce you to a tool that can help you think differently about your work, your organization, your colleagues, and the opportunities they might be missing because of blind spots.
