Creating Inclusive Teams
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) defines an inclusive organizational culture as “the achievement of a work environment in which all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute fully to the organization's success." Inclusive organizational cultures are vital to employee engagement, commitment, persistence, and performance outcomes. Yet how do you build inclusivity among teams and within organizational cultures? In this workshop, we will uncover practical steps that you can take to influence inclusion at the individual, team, and organization levels.
In this workshop, participants will:
- Gain a better understanding of the terms: diversity, equity, and inclusion
- Explore benefits of inclusive teams and organizational cultures
- Create a personalized plan to cultivate inclusivity within one’s team and organization
