Description

In these times, it is necessary to go beyond diversity and inclusion (D&I), it should be more than just a policy. In fact, research shows that employees who feel their voice is heard are more likely to perform their best work.  The results of this year’s American Management Association (AMA) Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Survey confirm that simply having a diversity & inclusion policy in place does not effectively solve the problem of discriminatory practices, whether deliberate or unconscious. A successful culture of belonging requires leadership commitment and involvement, an ongoing practice of inclusion, recognition of unique talents and accomplishments and an environment that fosters respect for openly and authentically sharing thoughts. 

This webcast will provide insight to the critical concepts of equity, belonging, and allyship, how they impact workplace culture and interactions, and the steps necessary to start building an action plan for a diversity, inclusion and belonging initiative in your organization. We will discuss the results of this survey, their implications and: 

Who Should Attend:
Training professionals and business unit leaders who wish to gain tools and strategies they can leverage to be a better ally, explore belonging and equity, and create inclusive cultures.

  • In-house D&I practices and policies—and whether organizations’ employees think they are being effectively implemented
  • Current D&I initiatives and what the main organizational focus relevant to these should be at the present time
  • Response rates of employees being discriminated against in the workplace
  • Awareness of unconscious bias in the workplace, from the perspective of individual employees, as well as among co-workers
