Making Room for Another Seat at the Table
Why are diversity and inclusion important for every organization, company, and team across the country and even across the world?
In addition to the obvious moral importance, a lack of diversity across organizations of all sizes has created a $1 trillion gap for businesses in America ($3.7 trillion globally). The opportunity to improve the culture AND bottom line for proactive companies is undeniable.
In this 45-minute Primer, you’ll learn how to be part of the solution to help close the diversity and inclusion gap. An inclusive culture allows you to protect the bottom line (EEOC compliance) while growing the top line (unbridled creativity).
Diversity Is Not a Luxury!
Let’s be clear… in 2021, diversity is a necessity for every brand and organization that wants to become profitable, remain relevant, and lead their market in the future.
Diversity of Thought Requires Diversity of Representation
Race or Ethnicity
Gender and Identity
This is not about asking people to change their values or core beliefs. Instead, the conversation of diversity & inclusion is about holding space for difficult-but-necessary conversations and being open to ideas, perspectives, and experiences outside of your own. D&I means allowing others to have a seat at the table.
The Future of Work
Did you know... in the next 4 years, millennials will make up about 75% of the workforce, and this emerging workforce has identified that one of their top reasons for selecting an employer is for that employer to have a strong value-based culture of diversity and inclusion. If they don’t experience this in their workplace, on average they will only stick with a job for up to a year.
When your employees feel engaged, when they feel heard, and when they feel cared for, they tend to like coming to work. Your turnover rates go way down and your engagement rates go way up. The right diversity and inclusion strategy and training, that leads to an inclusive culture, can help your employees move from being seen, to being included, to being engaged, to being committed. Engaged committed employees bring the best version of themselves to work. Are you ready to learn how to protect the bottom line (EEOC compliance) while growing the top line (unbridled creativity)?
