Analytical

A Connector is intent on taking a deeper look at experiences in the workplace and trying to better understand the dynamics at play. You may have read articles or seen data on diversity and inclusion. Connectors usually find this information fascinating and they are interested in understanding the concept of unconscious bias. The idea that something can be going on in our minds that we are not aware of can be a little disconcerting - especially when you’ve come to rely on your brain for your success in the workplace!

Insightful

You are probably noticing patterns and it may seem like the people getting recognised and rewarded have similarities that don’t always have to do with work-related criteria.  When you look at the various career paths of your colleagues, you are connecting the dots and may wonder if the reasons for those differences might be more related to opportunity than ability or commitment.

Compassionate

Connectors are interested in taking other people’s perspectives and  connecting with their workplace experiences. It is important to you to learn what it is like to walk in someone else’s shoes, especially if they have a very different background or personal characteristics from you.

Cautious

As a Connector, you may have engaged in conversations about how the workplace could adapt to leverage the benefit of differences among people. Most likely these conversations have occurred within small groups or with people who are similar to you.

You have been increasing your awareness of where the playing field may not be level, and no doubt you’re assessing the risks and rewards of discussing these topics at work. Conversations about diversity can be very tricky. Continue to keep an eye on patterns that might indicate potential bias.  For example, are there certain people who are more frequently interrupted in meetings? Is there an individual on your team who is unintentionally left out of informal gatherings or conversations? It’s totally okay to have friends at work, but it is not okay for there to be “in-groups” and “out-groups” that determine who has access to influential networks or gets greater visibility and opportunities. Start small and build your confidence in highlighting differences and potential inequities. This is a competency that can be built over time.
