Successful diversity and inclusion initiatives are based on a very simple premise - that all people desire and expect to be valued for the contribution they make to the organization. When employees experience this, we’ve witnessed a real business impact: improved decision-making capability, reduction in business and project risks, increase innovative thinking, enhanced customer service, and reduction in turnover. Yet recent studies show that few companies (from Silicon Valley to the Fortune 500) have successful D&I programs in place. Instead, many are failing by actually strengthening biases and reducing inclusion. What gives?
This workshop explores what’s working and what’s not when it comes to boosting and leveraging diversity in organizational cultures today. From there we present methods and tools to help leaders identify unconscious bias, create the conditions for true inclusion, and draw out diverse perspectives to meet shared goals.
Participants should walk away from this program ready to help their teams engage differently and use their diversity as a strategic asset.
