While it is reassuring that more organizations recognize the value of diversity in their teams and are implementing metrics to measure progress, the real goal of diversity is to create a culture of inclusion and belonging. By focusing on establishing an inclusive environment, organizations can unlock the true value of diversity.

In this powerful DLA strategic workshop, Dima Ghawi shares important tips based on workplace surveys and interviews that she has conducted across a variety of organizations. They include:

Providing insight into what employees need to feel welcomed and included.

Managing change and creating a courageous culture.

Using RASCI (Responsible, Accountable, Supportive, Consulted and Informed) method to ensure multiple departments beyond HR can implement DEI into their daily work.

Structuring and utilizing Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are valuable affinity groups that provide a support network and education opportunities for their members and also increase awareness across the company.

Creating a culture of inclusion is no longer simply “a nice to have.” Instead, it is essential for recruiting, engaging, and retaining top talent and, as a result, increasing the company’s competitive advantage. Our virtual audience members will leave with actionable takeaways about aligning their DEI goals with company strategies and creating a productive, engaging, and inclusive workplace for their teams.
