Competencies: Business (Behavioral) | Intended Audience: Senior-Level (Elevating DEI)
Workplace Application:
Discover the dangers of using the business case in companies to advocate for inclusion and equity and what to do instead. 

Understand the dangers of using the business case as an incentive to invest in DEI work, focusing on why the dogma of the business case has existed for so long, how this framework is ineffective in creating an equitable workplace, the effects of such an approach on marginalized folks, and alternatives that businesses can use to create anti-oppressive organizations.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn why the business case has been dogma for a very long time.
  • Unpack how and why the business case does not live out inclusion and equity values 
  • Be empowered with alternatives to the business case that you can courageously deploy in their companies to advance inclusion and equity
