What if Your Inclusion Team is Pointless?

It’s been said that Chief diversity officers are pointless

That’s one thing

But what if you’re part of an Inclusion team that’s pointless

That’s another thing entirely!

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re going to be talking about some opportunities you have to create change if  you’re part of an Inclusion team that’s pointless

In todays show we discuss several things including:

  • The areas that make Chief Diversity Officers and their teams pointless
  • How to raise your Inclusion standards and those of everyone around you
  • The hidden Inclusion opportunities available for everyone and much more

Here’s some of what I share in the show

Commit to developing a critical mass of knowledge

 “you don’t need to be a subject matter expert on each and every aspect of diversity and inclusion. But what you do need is a critical mass of knowledge; and frankly not enough people have that.. and you know what… it shows”

Create clarity about what diversity and inclusion mean in your organisation

“you’ll already become more intentional about your approach you can amplify this by articulating what this looks like in your organisation”

Consider using a framework or a methodology

“We talk about frameworks all the time here; it all fits into our evidence based approach and methodology”
