Foundations of Diversity and Inclusion

In Partnership with Eagle’s Flight

Going from Introspection to Action to Build Inclusion

When it comes to company culture, everyone from senior leaders to individual contributors has an impact. Driving real change at the cultural level means shifting our behaviors and thought processes. By examining our individual beliefs, we’ll gain context for understanding others. By recognizing how interactions shape company culture, we’ll build a foundation for enacting the changes needed to cultivate an inclusive workplace.

Foundations in Diversity & Inclusion content overview

Diversity is about acknowledging and respecting the differences of the people who you work with, while inclusion is creating a culture of trust and belonging that enables every individual to maximize their contributions. Company culture isn’t set simply by the guidance of HR, it manifests across each layer and team in an organization. Intentionally building a culture where employees and leaders embrace diversity and inclusion can have tremendous benefits for your organization. This course is valuable for team members at all levels, offering an engaging experience that is part introspective and part interactive. Through a combination of hands-on techniques, the course facilitator will guide participants to look inward to externally produce results that allow those around them to thrive.
