Diversity can be the strengths of a society and cultural barriers the weakness. Diversity without taking care of inclusion will be only an effort. Organisations that are able to focus on both diversity and inclusion practices, will experience the best outcomes and greatest alignment with business objectives.
Although good progress has been observed recently, a stark gap persists. Part of the problem is that “diversity” and “inclusion” are so often lumped together assuming that they’re the same thing. But that’s not the case. At the workplace, diversity equals representation. However, without inclusion, the crucial connections that attract diverse talent, encourage their participation, foster innovation, and lead to business growth, will not happen.
This workshop will create the bases for a reflection on best practices to increase diversity, promote inclusion and to instigate the concept of belonging.
To build a culture of belonging, a strong inclusion programme is fundamental, for a healthier company, unleashing the very real value of a diverse workforce, and achieving diversity of thought at all levels.
