Diversity and Inclusion isn't just a box to check, diversity is in all of us, and we all want to feel included and have that sense of belonging.
What we all would benefit from is a world, a society and a workplace culture where everyone, no matter what their background, is treated with fairness, respect, equality and dignity plus has agency over their opportunities – for us all to be able to show up as our whole selves and to not have to cover or mask a key part of our identity in order to conform and ‘culture fit’.
Surely, that’s all you’d expect for yourself, is it not?
The benefits are clear:
- You better understand your customers
- Your people and teams perform at their peak
- There are greater levels of innovation and creativity through empowerment
- It’s easier to hire and retain talent because you are trusted
- It will boost your relevance and alignment with the communities in which you serve and operate
Yet… we know the facts don’t change people – why aren’t organisations leveraging this power and still propagate performative actions, tokenistic hiring and not truly owning their own D&I playbook.
In this session, Joanne Lockwood will explore these points, challenge the way you are thinking about D&I and elevate it to a cross-business function.
Outcomes of the “Why of D&I” event:
- Why vision and values matter as a starting point
- How to align your trajectory in terms of vector and velocity to achieve your D&I goals
- How to measure success, and know when to course-correct…
And most importantly – finding your own “Why of D&I.”
