Session: Less Talk, More Action: How to Amplify Inclusive Teaming
While there has been an increased push of diversity initiatives in companies, diversity in and of itself is not enough. I suspect that you yearn, not just “a seat at the table”, but to feel as if you are fully accepted, understood, and valued by those you work with. In short, to be fully included.
Because of this natural yearning we all have, a more powerful endgame for organizations is to grow from diversity to inclusion in order to maximize the engagement and talent of its people.
How do you overcome the barriers that get in the way of moving from just an acknowledgment that inclusion is important, to real action that can spark lasting change?
The answer lies within the cornerstone of driving results within organizations: TEAMS. Well-developed teams provide the catalyst for adopting and practicing behaviors that can overcome the barriers to inclusion.
This talk provides you with a greater awareness of how you can be a change agent for more Inclusive Teaming for yourself and your organization.
