There can be a "build it, and they will come" mentality when it comes to workplace learning. However, building learning is not a guarantee that learning will happen. The learning environment that is created should foster safety and feed the desire and motivation to learn. Learners who feel safe are more likely to innovate, experiment, and reach higher levels of performance. Creating an encouraging and supportive climate takes intentionality and commitment from human resources and learning and development professionals who play a pivotal role in shaping environments that nurture growth, knowledge-sharing, and collaboration.  

This session is designed to empower HR and L&D specialists with a holistic understanding of the strategies that drive meaningful transformation. As organizations increasingly recognize the impact of psychologically safe spaces on employee engagement, innovation, and overall success, this session offers strategies for driving positive change. We will explore key principles, case studies, and evidence-based approaches that not only enhance learning outcomes but also foster an atmosphere where all voices are valued and all employees can thrive.  

In this session, you will:

  • Learn the critical role psychological safety plays in fostering effective learning environments.

  •  Practical strategies to design learning experiences that embrace diversity and inclusivity tools to address unconscious biases that may hinder inclusivity and psychological safety.

  • Strategies for addressing learner safety concerns and challenges.
