From Diversity to Inclusion
Diversity & Inclusion Content Area

Organizations mirror the world which has become smaller, through technology and more diverse through social and business interactions. Individuals must function as customer service representatives to not only citizens, who create the major client base, but to the world and to each other. This presentation examines the full spectrum of diversity by utilizing a Dimensions of Diversity Grid to help executives make sense of the variances and impact of each factor. We will explore values and beliefs that support stereotypes, misperceptions, miscommunication, and other barriers that are a hindrance to embracing and adopting diversity and inclusionary best practices. Managers will learn how diversity can be a tool for success when based on inclusionary practices. They will examine how valuing diversity moves the organization’s culture forward in achieving its goals and objectives, while collectively embracing the mission. 

Speaker: Dr. Indigo Triplett, CEO, Careers In Transition


Dr. Indigo Triplett's dynamic personality and irrefutable expertise is the reputation that precedes her. As the CEO & Founder of Careers In Transition, Inc., she leads the successful Performance Management consulting firm that provides wise strategies for performance and productivity. From the Federal Government to Fortune 500 Corporations, Careers In Transition, Inc. helps organizations attract, develop, and retain employees for improved results. As a renowned Speaker, Indigo is hilariously honest and refreshingly blunt giving a professional twist that captures her audience’s imagination and inspires their spirit. Indigo launched Careers In Transition as an independent consultant in 1995, which quickly parlayed into a successful venture resulting in the company becoming incorporated in 1997. Initially, the company provided career transitional assistance during a period when many companies needed to downsize, but ultimately changed its focus as companies became more enlightened to the concept of motivating their remaining employees to perform and excel. As the author of Playing by the Unwritten Rules I: Moving from the Middle to the Top and Playing by the Unwritten Rules II: From a Job Defense to a Career Offense, she is a leading authority on career management. Dr. Indigo received her Ph.D. in Values-Driven Leadership from Benedictine University. She holds a MA in Organizational Development from Webster University, a BA in Radio and Television from Southern Illinois University.
