Research from social psychology tells us that leaders, like all human beings, naturally tend to gravitate toward like-minded individuals.
Making diversity and inclusion a priority begins at the top of any organisation. Inclusive leadership is critical for organisations that want to adopt an inclusive culture to create a great workplace for all levels of employees. Being an inclusive leader takes more than surrounding yourself with employees with different perspectives and backgrounds.
Employees want an open, unique, team-oriented, transparent, and inviting workplace for everyone. They want to ask and ensure they feel a sense of belonging and value.
The Inclusive Leadership Series includes six episodes in a bi-monthly period. The peer-to-peer session touches on the topics each workplace leader and manager should know about leading a diverse team and building an inclusive culture. The lessons we learned in this session will assist leaders in igniting and fueling an environment where diversity is welcomed and fueled to achieve better results.
