Learning Objectives

While organizations have strategically prioritized diversity and inclusion (D&I) as a competitive advantage, creating an inclusive culture enables organizations to take a principled stance and act as allies to employees, ensuring they reach their full potential.

Although the organizational benefits of D&I are well-established – including but not limited to larger revenue growth, a more positive employee experience, better employee retention, and greater innovation – organizations often concentrate efforts on increasing diversity, missing the full benefits that cannot be realized without an inclusive culture. To eliminate systemic barriers diverse employees face, inclusive practices must be embedded throughout organizational culture through its work practices, values, and behaviors.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to determine the current state of D&I

  • Framing Inclusion for the entire organization

  • Mobilizing inclusion efforts throughout the organization
