Psychological Safety: A Foundation for DEIA

We know from research that diversity is necessary and yet insufficient to have the most productive, creative teams. Psychological safety is a critical component for ensuring all team members speak up, voice their ideas, or raise a red flag is something is wrong. As part of its Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) Strategy, JPL has identified the need for increased psychological safety in our teams, particularly our flight projects, to ensure we achieve our missions successfully. In this session, you will learn what psychological safety is and how to create it.
