Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace- Live Online

 

This program focuses on how to practice inclusion. It is about learning to identify the most common behaviors that hinder inclusion, and the key behaviors that promote it. This simple ‘how to’ approach, has a practical appeal to the many organizations whose main focus is results.

 

There are five behaviors that are at the heart of practicing inclusion:

 

1) NETWORKING – social engagement with members outside our core identity group (i.e., conversing and socializing with those of a different race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, etc.). This is in contrast to a typical social pattern known as flocking—associating predominantly with our own “in-group”.

 

2) SENSITIVITY – consciously avoiding offensive behavior out of respect for the social norms of others. This is in contrast to many who consciously or inadvertently alienate people from other identity groups due to their ignorance, callousness or indifference.

 

3) CALIBRATION – making adjustments in our social interactions and work style to accommodate other perspectives and approaches. This is in contrast to being mono-cultural (i.e., expecting conformity to a dominant culture, one-size-fits-all approach).

 

4) ADVOCACY – consistently confronting discriminatory behavior of all kinds (particularly on behalf of others). This is in contrast to the practice of collusion where we remain silent when inappropriate comments are made in order to not make waves.

 

5) POSITIVE EXPECTANCY – believing the best of others and treating them accordingly. This is in contrast to holding on to hidden biases that are laden with negative stereotypes.
