Diversity & Inclusion Overview

Diversity & Inclusion

Our most popular presentation! Diversity is about empowering people by respecting and appreciating what makes them different, regarding age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, and national origin. Inclusion is a company’s efforts and practices in which different groups or individuals having dissimilar backgrounds are culturally and socially accepted, welcomed, and treated equally. 

Couple all this with millennials creating their definition, and you can see where policy and procedure collide. Millennials view diversity as the thoughtful blending of different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives within a team.

In this interactive presentation, we discuss unconscious bias and conscious inclusion. We look at stereotyping and the negative impacts that it can have on a companies culture. We also look into what the correct definition of privilege. This presentation isn't always comfortable, but it is worth it!

Additionally, we look inside of selves to recognize the strengths that we bring and how to avoid overusing those strengths.

Culture Club

The best company cultures cannot be pieced together or voted on. Company culture goes far beyond "casual Friday" or "working from home." A perks-driven culture is not what inspires employees. The best company cultures are molded to fit the existing values and vision of the company. Culture is not a single activity, it's sophisticated and deserves careful consideration. Culture done right involves communication and training. Companies must be creative and genuine to retain top performers. Culture-centric companies attract top talent. Culture supportive practices help your company grow and guarantee high performance and optimal employee development. This presentation lays out the framework for implementing a culture change agenda that improves your bottom line, increases loyalty and attracts the best talent.
