Find out if diversity and inclusion climates also vary between different organisations.

Here are some key takeaways from this episode:
My focus in this show is not on diversity and inclusion climates in general but within specific organisations just like yours.
Diversity Climates and Inclusion Climates are not the same thing
“Well it’s important to note that many scholars think of a Diversity climate as being distinct from an Inclusion Climate. You also won’t be surprised to know that they don’t always agree on what any of these words mean”
Diversity & Inclusion Climates are related to important Outcomes
“Diversity climates have also been shown to be related to minority employee retention and they are a consistent predictor of workplace discrimination against those with disabilities. This makes this relevant for you.”
Not Considering Your Diversity & Inclusion Climate Can Have Negative Consequences
“Research has shown that Organisations that have negative diversity climates, i.e., they do not truly value diversity in their employees and set a tone that reflects this are likely to experience high turnover in newly recruited employees from underrepresented groups”
