About the course

Innovate for diversity and equity with evidence, behavioural insights and business design.

Rotman brings a new approach to designing for inclusion.

Achieving inclusion is a top priority for most organizations today. However, despite system wide attempts to improve inclusion, there has been little tangible progress and poorly designed interventions have even resulted in unintended consequences. For example, some organizations that implemented mandatory diversity training had 6% fewer black women in management positions after five years. At the individual level, backlash effects can occur if trainees resent being selected for diversity training and view training as punishment for prior insensitive behaviour.

To be successful, inclusion innovations need to be user-centric, easy to adopt and evidence-based. By understanding barriers to inclusion from a user-centric lens, we can better design policies and process that actually work.

The First of Its Kind

There are breakthroughs available at the intersection of behavioural insights, data analytics and design thinking.

The Rotman School of Management combines the latest in inclusion research, behavioural insights, design, and data analytics to deliver a unique program to innovate for inclusion over 6 half-day sessions.

This program includes:

  • Why current initiatives fail
  • Real data on which practices work and which don't
  • Workshops on live challenges
  • Hands-on exercises designing new initiatives

Inclusion by Design is for leaders and organization looking for disruptive and evidence-backed ways to design, implement and evaluate inclusion practices that actually work. Whether it’s hiring, retention or compensation, use a new approach to move past acceptance to true inclusion so you can engage, energize, inspire and benefit from diversity with greater success.

What You Can Expect

Inclusion by Design reframes inclusion as an innovation challenge using the latest insights from behavioural economics and business design to innovate for diversity at the personal, team and organizational levels.

Our expert faculty will guide you through a winning business design process for improving diversity and inclusion in your organization that you can apply quickly and effectively upon your return to the office.

  • Examine and understand data around why diversity initiatives are failing
