Inclusive Management Starts with You: Leading Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

For managers today, it’s not enough to maximize team performance, exceed client demands, and recruit and hire a diverse team. Being an inclusive manager requires actively acknowledging what is happening in the world with your team, leading discussions that may feel new or uncomfortable, and constantly building a toolbox to promote inclusion and equity.

In this engaging program, we offer specific hacks to help managers mitigate unconscious bias and promote inclusivity on their teams. It’s all about fostering awareness, encouraging habitual practices to be inclusive, inviting new voices to weigh in on decisions, and prioritizing team discussions on the topics of diversity and inclusion on a regular basis.  Participants have countless “aha” moments, and they discover how bias impacts all kinds of decisions ranging from who gets hired and promoted to who gets asked to take notes at the team meeting. The program culminates with specific, actionable ideas and tools to build and constantly add to a Diversity/Equity/Inclusion toolbox.

PARTICIPANTS LEAVE THIS PROGRAM WITH THE ABILITY TO:

  • Understand how personal and life experience impact your perspective and actions as a manager
  • Create safe spaces for employees to discuss what is happening in the world, and what it means for the organization
  • Intentionally foster conversations that amplify all voices and reach across lines of difference on your team
  • Integrate a D&I checklist for all business decision making
This engaging program challenges managers to build their DEI toolbox and intentionally foster progress and ongoing discussions about inclusivity at work.
