Having Real Conversations About Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging
Presented By: Alissa Carpenter
In terms of creating the best possible workplace culture that we can. We want an environment where all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and can fully contribute to the organization’s success.
It’s not just about feeling better on the job. Research has demonstrated that companies with diverse workforces are more likely to financially outperform national averages.
The diversity initiatives of the past have tried to make sure everyone had a seat at the table. That’s a good first step, but much more needs to be done so that everyone feels like they belong at that table. This is the essence of inclusivity. An inclusive environment encompasses all types of diversity, and actively takes steps to make sure everyone is comfortable and welcome.
This program will break down the language of diversity and inclusion, and walk through some solutions and inclusive best practices. This will involve potentially having some uncomfortable conversations along the way. However, before we conclude, you will be equipped with tools and techniques you can use to navigate your way to creating a collaborative and inclusive environment.
