Science for Better Decisions
We were thrilled to have Sylvia join us for our International Women’s Day celebration! Sylvia’s presentation was informative and entertaining – she is an excellent speaker and her presentation included real-time opportunities for our attendees to better understand unconscious bias. In addition, Sylvia was incredible to work with throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Sylvia to anyone looking for a dynamic expert in diversity and inclusion.

Sylvia Apostolidis launched The Jasmar Group to help companies frustrated with the slow pace of change in advancing workplace inclusion. Despite good intentions and effort, companies struggle to achieve widespread engagement and diverse representation levels.
How can companies make faster progress?
We realized that we can’t change behaviour unless we bring an understanding of how people actually behave to our solutions. This led us to build a rigourous, evidence-based framework using insights from the behavioural sciences.
