Unconscious Bias Learning Series

This workshop is about putting everything together from the Breaking the Bias training series, sponsored by the DISH ERGs.

About this Event:

Putting it all together, we use the E.M.P.A.T.H.Y. model of communication to put our Curiosity and Empathy skills to the test. Non-verbal and verbal cues and communication skills are vital to creating an authentic, vulnerable, and safe connection with anyone. You’ll learn the importance of eye contact and tone of voice, for example, to communicate with intention, Curiosity, and Empathy, even with your biases still present.


These ‘Breaking the Bias’ trainings will be facilitated by UB Ciminieri from Breaking the Bias. Although the sessions do build on each other, you do not have to participate in every session if you’re not able.

This Breaking the Bias training series has been sponsored by DISH’s Employee Resource Groups. Learn more about all the DISH Employee Resource Groups, and sign up to … Read more and comment

DWN Leader Series: Supriya Surender – Life with Alopecia

Join DWN for this Leader Speaker Series with Supriya Surender.

About this Event

Supriya Surender joined DISH in 2011 and currently works as a Senior Analyst for CXO’s Voice of the Customer team.

Her life took an unexpected turn in 2015, when she lost all of her hair to the auto-immune disease, Alopecia. As someone who has spent the majority of her adult life dealing with anxiety and depression, Alopecia was a devastating blow to her self-worth and overall mental health. After having a near death experience with a pulmonary embolism in 2017, Supriya went from fighting mental health demons to finding a new lease on life.

Now she has turned her Alopecia into a passion and purpose by starting a blog called Baldie Boo. Supriya uses her life struggles to connect with others who are dealing with hair loss and strives. Her hope is to inspire those in the hair loss community who have lost hope, and show them that they can, and will, find their light at the end of the tunnel. No matter how dark.
