Thankfully, both the ethical and practical value of DE&I has become more widely recognized. But the extent to which an organization is fundamentally and culturally receptive to DE&I improvement is less often explored and less frequently addressed. This highly interactive session will explore two aspects of management culture that directly impact the organization's ability to realize results from DE&I programing. First is the question of environmental receptivity: Is the organization in the habit of routinely gathering people of different backgrounds, needs, and agendas? Do regular management and team meetings make a concerted effort to equitably assess and value all contributions? Does leadership and senior management model transparent and fair decision-making even for difficult issues or unpopular tradeoffs? Second is the question of behavioral flexibility: Does the culture allow members to intelligently contemplate and adopt novel behaviors of any kind? Is new information met with interest, or resistance? Is decision-making nuanced, or do simple 'either/or' type arguments dominate the discussion?

In this webinar, bestselling author Ed Muzio and Reggie Wilson will present a framework for thinking about, and answering, questions like these. They'll explore insight into and share language for thinking about how DE&I friendly the broader organizational culture may be, and what the Training or L&D function can do to make it friendlier.

U.S. based attendees participants will have a chance to win the book ITERATE® Run a fast, flexible, focused management team.  Must ATTEND to to be eligible.
