BK308 Solving the Diversity Puzzle: Closing the Gap Between Intention and Success

For years, we have measured diversity by counting how many members of target groups were on the roster. What was missing was inclusion – the process of shifting the culture to value a diverse population. With a focus on statistics, those not part of the dominant culture often found themselves on the outside – disengaged and underutilized. If diversity is about numbers, inclusion is about creating an environment where everyone can be a meaningful contributor; a competitive advantage for organizations willing to take the time to do it right. This workshop is for anyone interested in inclusivity; whether looking to expand opportunities for under-served populations, to work on a global stage, or simply to take advantage of diverse work styles. You will:
• Learn what it means to create a culture of inclusion and what the research tells us about why it is important for creativity, innovation and organizational outcomes across the board.
• Learn the building blocks of an inclusive culture – the foundation and the four pillars of success.
• Learn actionable strategies (both short-term and long-range) to help begin (or expand) a journey to inclusion.
