THE PROBLEM

The three biggest problems leaders face on their inclusion journey

Creating a Diverse and Inclusive workplace is one of the greatest challenges facing leaders in the 21st Century. Despite billions spent every year, most initiatives have proved to be ineffective. Jonathan has interviewed hundreds of leaders, employees and academics and identified three predictable problems that leaders face on their inclusion journey. The science says that you need to address each of these issues to have an inclusive workplace.

Leaders have trouble engaging the people that they want to include in the organisation; their initiatives are often concerned with other leaders and this excludes the people that need the most attention. This is an expensive waste of talent because it contributes to low retention in the company.

  • How underrepresented groups remain excluded from your inclusion efforts
  • Why your diversity initiatives benefit a minority of employees and marginalise others
  • Why middle management remain demotivated and resistant to inclusive change
