Fearless and Fulfilled - Growing a Climate of Psychological Safety

Session Host/Speaker(s)

Speaking your mind, taking risks, and creativity are all characteristics of high-performing teams. But before we can speak out and suggest a new idea, we have to trust that our team won’t shut us down or shut us out! Psychological safety is a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes. When you have psychological safety in the workplace, people feel comfortable being themselves. They bring their full diverse selves to work and feel okay being vulnerable, collaborative, and enjoy taking risks. Psychological safety is critical to fostering inclusion and innovation. It matters because it leads to healthier, more productive, and more inclusive teams. Join Aditi Chakravarty, Principal, Learning and Organizational Development at Berkeley Lab, on an exploration of how to build a culture of psychological safety within your team and your organization and a Q&A session hosted by Davida Johnson, UCLA.
