What does inclusion really look like and how can you build it?
Inclusion as defined by Merriam-Webster is “the act of including; the state of being included.” This is a very simple definition that becomes more complicated when introduced into an organization because of the different affinity groups that can exist and because we need to discover and include each affinity groups’ unique needs.
Many organizations have adopted intentional hiring practices to ensure a diverse workplace. When taking the time to hire diverse candidates, are you considering how your team or organization’s culture may need to shift to allow this diverse collection of people to coalesce and flourish? Inclusion is the only scaleable way to build diversity within an organization. Without thoughtful and deliberate discussion and action to cultivate an inclusive environment, the energy and resources spent on recruiting a diverse workforce are lost. The employees, so painstakingly recruited, will be gone within months. Join the conversation as we discuss specific Inclusion challenges and best practices.
