Many companies have acknowledged the injustices against the Black community and have publicly stated their support of the “Black Lives Matter” movement. Organizations are processing recent events, trying to figure out how to use the momentum of this moment to define new paths towards becoming a better employer, advocate, colleague and friend to people of color.
HR has been at the center of navigating workforces during the pandemic, and will also play a pivotal role in healing and moving their respective organizations forward in the diversity, equity, and inclusion conversations.
To drive real change is to understand the values, attitudes, perceptions, and learned experiences at the individual level. These aspects influence human behavior and inform decision-making, impacting everything from inter-personal relationships to organizational policies and practices.
During this interactive workshop, we’ll discuss:
· What are values, attitudes, and perceptions and how do they play out in the workplace?
· What are the types of diversity?
· How does group diversity improve team performance?
· What is a DE&I maturity model? Gain insights and learnings to move through the stages.
Please join the conversation to understand diversity from a human and organizational behavior perspective and gain insights to inform your organization’s DE&I strategy.
