Over the past five years diversity has emerged as a hot button topic. It comes with a unique challenge because diversity encompasses a wide range of elements including gender, race, sexual orientation, thoughts, abilities, and so on. Because of the amount of work that needs to be done to create visible waves, it can seem as if conditions are stagnant. In fact, tech has been charged with “all talk and no action” even though there are a number of companies genuinely doing their part by implementing initiatives and practices.
The purpose of Diversity Done Right is to acknowledge those who have taken steps to transform their workplaces and events. By highlighting diversity being done right, we hope to create a community that will continue to learn from one another and successfully rise to the challenge of creating inclusive spaces for everyone.
At Innovate Inclusion we believe that a company’s inclusion strategy is the key to sustaining diversity within the workplace. The idea that diversity can be done right, also suggests that diversity can be not done at all and even done wrong. It is also important to note that when we say diversity is being done right we are not suggesting that diversity is simply done and achieved, however, we choose to celebrate those small wins.
There are a number of practices that help to shift organizations into inclusive communities. Join in on the conversation as highlight corporate approaches and strive for a cultural shift.
