With diversity a prominent topic in the media, and the benefits of an inclusive workplace widely discussed and documented, many organisations are exploring what inclusion and diversity mean for them. There may be some fear around these topics. Employees can feel uncertain about what it is acceptable to say and do.
Our workshop for colleagues is highly engaging and interactive. We quickly get to the heart of some of the terminology and definitions to create clarity. Recognisable examples and scenarios are discussed, and we invite input from the participants to make it real. Practical tips and actions are shared to help your individual contributors plan ways to behave more inclusively in their day-to-day relationships and interactions.
This workshop is relevant to all colleagues, of any seniority.
Participants will gain an understanding of what is meant by inclusive behaviour and how they can make changes in their day-to-day interactions to foster greater belonging. They will:
Understand how diversity and inclusion is relevant to them and their business settings
Learn what gets in the way of being more inclusive, and how to address this
Discover how to create greater belonging in teams
Develop a shared ‘language’ that enables them to continue the conversation beyond the workshop with their colleagues
Commit to take action.
