Many diversity training programs unfortunately proceed without systematic assessment of a particular organization’s needs or careful research about successful precedents in measurably improving workplace cultures.
Genuine diversity & inclusion means going beyond tokenism or counting minorities- it involves recognizing who is included and excluded from full participation in the services an organization provides. Eliminating barriers to participation benefits not only previously marginalized individuals and groups but allows an organization to maximize its outreach and its appeal for diverse audiences. The bottom line: diversity and inclusion are good for business.
Expanded organizational diversity & inclusion requires multiple types of simultaneous activity targeting individual learning, team development, organizational structure, and cultural climate, all of which interact in any workplace.
