The time is now for transformational change and a recommitment to inclusion. Organizations in the United States spend $8 billion on diversity and inclusion training each year. And yet, the results simply aren't there: 45% of US workers report experiencing discrimination in the past year and 75% of employees in underrepresented groups do not feel they have personally benefited from their company's DE&I programs. While inclusion initiatives such as forming Employee Resource Groups and unconscious bias training are very important first steps to improve inclusion across the organization, Linkage's most recent research finds these activities alone are far from sufficient. Most leaders do not believe they have the tools and resources necessary to create and sustain a culture of inclusion.   Please join Eddie Turner, Principal Consultant & Executive Coach at Linkage, a SHRM company, to discover what makes an inclusive organization and how you can turn your leaders and workforce into inclusion champions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the current landscape of inclusion at organizations today.
  • Discover the three critical attributes to a more inclusive culture and practices that you can apply to impact employee perception of inclusion that will lead to improvement on critical business drivers like financial results, decision-making, innovation and employee Net Promoter Score (NPS).
  • Learn the five hallmark behaviors of inclusive leadership that are inextricably linked to effective, purposeful leadership.
