Building a Diverse and Inclusive Workplace

Going beyond checking the box; designing inclusion into the workplace everyday

 

Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.

Verna Myers

Diversity and social justice are reaching new levels within social consciousness and are beginning to significantly influence business decisions. They have also become important factors in how employees and candidates evaluate the attractiveness of employers.

It is no longer fresh insight that companies that focus on fairness and take steps to increase diversity have a better chance of attracting and retaining top talent. And, research has shown positive business outcomes for organizations with diverse workforces, especially those with diversity within their leadership teams.

Our Approach

For D&I interventions to be truly effective, a focus on both people and processes is needed. Only then can systemic bias and inequity be removed in all talent programs, practises, policies and protocols. Our approach for supporting organizations with these process changes is underpinned by five core principles:

Global Perspective

Thinking about cultural nuances
all around the world.

Personal Insight

Providing individuals with personalized information about their underlying characteristics that lead to inclusive behaviors.

Integrated Approach

Taking a holistic, integrated approach to building an inclusive culture – that starts at the top.

Role Modeling

Using allyship as a framework to inclusive leadership development and behavior modeling across the organization to effect change.

Accountability

Showing commitment to action by setting goals and measuring progress.
