This is pt II of the Diversity and Inclusion webinar series I’m presenting for Right Management:
Cultural bias and recruiting diverse talent are key components of any organization’s employee engagement and diversity commitment. In our first session we explored how Diversity and Inclusion empowers, recognizes and places a value on the unique attributes of all workers. In this session we will pick up where we left off by going deeper into the issues that make the difference.
First, we want to make sure we appreciate the most significant and natural challenge that all organizations and people face… Cultural Bias. There is no human being on this planet that does not have some type of bias. It’s a natural phenomenon. It’s our job to understand our bias and the bias of the organization because it can have significant consequences. During this session we will explore how you and your organization can identify and correct this natural tendency that we all have and must manage.
Secondly, we will explore the Impact Zone Factors that relate to the organization’s ability to recruit a diverse workforce. Remember from our first session we talked about the business case for diversity and the competitive advantage that diversity and inclusion provides your organization. To recruit the best, we must know how and where to find the best workforce.
Remember, Diversity and Inclusion is designed to empower, recognize and place a value on the unique attributes of all workers. Employers who put people assets and talent first, regardless of their race, religion, gender, age, or physical disability have a distinct advantage over their competitors.
- Reinforce your understanding of the definition of Diversity and Inclusion and its application to your environment
- Understand the concept of Cultural Bias and its diminishing return on your competitive advantage
- Understand how and where to find and hire the diverse workforce that will give you a complete organization that provides innovative and diverse solutions to meet your clients, customers, patients and community needs and expectations
I hope to see you there!
