The Reasons Why Staff Networks Can Be Incredibly Powerful for Diversity & Inclusion [Book Review]

Do you have any idea how powerful Staff Networks can be?

Today I’m reviewing a book that explores this power and how you can harness it

In todays show I discuss several things including:

  • The Power of Staff Networks
  • Their potential to create value within an organisation.
  • The interdisciplinary approach required for their success and much much more

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

The Power Of Staff Networks

I describe how the book explores how Staff Networks can exert influence within an organisation:

“Staff networks have power; staff networks can be harnessed to create change. They are not just a tick box exercise to boost popularity. They genuinely have the potential to create value within an organisation”

Value Creation

I discuss how Staff Networks can enhance the outcomes for an organisation

“a beacon which can shine a light on innovation and creative cooperation cutting across all levels of an organisation”, this clearly positions staff networks as an operational entity, not just a social one.”

Interdisciplinary Approach

I explain why it’s important to draw from several fields in order to be successful:

“The book contains lots of resources from academics and frameworks from practitioners but it also makes small but regular references to management and organisational theory”
