Description

Many organizations with existing diversity initiatives are struggling with ways to sustain them. This workshop introduces experienced diversity professionals to skills and competencies for looking at diversity strategically. The focus is on linking diversity to an organization's strategic business objectives, its marketplace, and long-term sustained culture change.

Through this workshop, understand:

  • How to identify key points where subtle actions from executives begin to derail their positive intentions towards the D&I process.
  • Why and how to develop the “right” metrics to support sustainability at every point in the D&I process.
  • How to overcome the “middle-management roadblock” to D&I success
  • Recognizing and correcting conceptual flaws in the design of key D&I support tools such as D&I surveys, conducting focus groups, diversity councils, ERGs, succession planning, employee selection systems and D&I training.
  • Why sustainability of a diversity initiative requires moving to inclusive organizational practices
  • Why sustainability requires an examination of business and not simply human resource practices
