Diversity Should be Natural
UB Ciminieri and Joe Thurman
Curiosity should be deliberate. Consciously choose to change your judgments into curiosity. Breaking the Bias is designed to help companies and individuals create tools, methods and strategies that systematically change an organization’s ability to drive curiosity. Created by Joe Thurman and UB Ciminieri, co-founders of Jobber Group, a national talent strategy firm, this action-based and immersive program puts attendees in the driver’s seat of their own conversations and exploration of Conscious Inclusion and Unconscious Bias, using exercises designed for internal understanding and formation of habits to value curiosity instead of judgment.

Surviving workplace violence and his Latino background define that perspective. As such, he is an advocate for people safety and happiness. He thrives in helping people overcome internal obstacles to be better humans to themselves and others. As an advocate he helps companies attract, hire and develop more inclusive and diverse talent. He speaks about the future of work and building inclusive companies. He strives to help people understand their own biases.
