Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace: Putting Knowledge into Action

Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is imperative for a sustainable, competitive and innovative company and society at large. Diversity also goes beyond the outward perception of a company – it includes how the internal structures work and signal the value systems of an organization’s management or leadership team.

This series is designed by Diversify to centre Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace. We look forward to seeing you!

Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace: Putting Knowledge into Action

For over a year now we have been having conversations about various themes, concepts and elements of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB). The New Year presents an ideal time to discuss how we go about putting these ideas into practice. As the saying goes, “Action speaks louder than words.”

Our first Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace session for 2022, will explore where and how to begin. Are you in a leadership role and responsible for enacting strategic change? Are you an employee who would like to see measurable progress at your workplace? Or would you like to make a conscious effort, on a personal level, to assess how your actions might contribute to the ripple effect that springboards a positive and sustainable DEIB culture?

The conversation will explore the following points and more:

  • Why are you embarking on this journey? Why now?
  • How should you begin enacting change to foster and sustain DEIB in your workplace?
  • What should be considered when creating a DEIB strategy?
  • What goals should be incorporated into the strategy?
  • What are the incentives and the risks?
  • How can accountability be integrated to ensure the strategy comes to fruition?

We look forward to engaging with you, as we collectively commit to ACT, where DEIB in the workplace is concerned.
