3 Clues To Understand The Diversity Hierarchy In Your Organisation

Every organisation has a diversity hierarchy, if you don’t know what it is, it could lead to a lot of wasted time

Get your pen and paper ready because I’m going to give you three clues to help you understand the diversity hierarchy within your organisation

In today’s show I discuss several things including:

  • The relationship between Economics and Diversity & Inclusion spend
  • The value of comparing and contrasting Diversity Hierarchy clues
  • The game you can play to understand your Diversity Hierarchy and much much more

Here’s some of what I share in the show:

Understand where they spend the money and allocate resources

“Look at the past 6 months and ask yourself, ask others, where does this organisation spend its money? how does it spend its money? The resources are likely being spent on their top priorities”

Understand what gets talked about and what does not

“You will notice a pattern that will be indicative of the diversity hierarchy. Something is going to get more attention than the others. Something is going to be repeated here. What is that?”

Understand who the heroes are, what do they look like?

“In any organisation that wants to promote inclusion, there will have a narrative about what inclusion means and they will promote the narrative using a number of high-profile individuals. Who are these people, what do they say, what do they look like?”

To continue the conversation, get in touch or leave a message, we would love to hear from you in our Linkedin Group that’s also where you can access a slide deck that summarises everything that we talk about on the show.
