Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace
August 30, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
In today’s political, economic, and global business environment, diversity has become increasingly important. While diversity and inclusion have been a part of the conversation and on the radar for many businesses for years, it is very apparent that more needs to be done. Despite this increased emphasis and scrutiny, it is widely believed that businesses face a reality gap: Results appear to be too slow. Tune in and learn how to close the gap between what is said about D&I at work and what needs to change or be improved upon.
More and more business leaders are seeing that cultivating equality is not just the right thing to do, but also the smart thing to do. Data shows that customers and employees expect companies to drive equality and that it has a tangible impact on the bottom line.
Diversity alone doesn’t move your entire business forward—inclusion is an integral part. Even if a company is vastly diverse yet unique perspectives aren’t being heard the culture will suffer. All people need to feel a sense of belonging. Inclusion is when every person is valued, heard, respected, empowered, and feels a true sense of belonging.
The commitment to educate and discuss diversity and inclusion falls on the shoulders of executive leadership, all managers and human resources. You will want your entire staff onboard with your company’s mission to embrace this timely topic.
