You've heard about why inclusion matters but why have so few companies been able to do it? In this webinar, we'll discuss the benefits of investing in inclusive leadership skills as a fundamental organizational strategy.
We'll describe our approach as a business initiative designed to improve bottom line business results with involvement across the organizational hierarchy. Regardless of the size of your organization, inclusion is something that is feasible and rich in opportunity.
We will detail three components to enable inclusivity in your organization: Mindset Shift, Skill Development and Process Change. We'll introduce you to our key framework of REFRAME, describe the skill competencies inclusion requires, and highlight the various processes that may be affected.
You'll learn the steps to enabling inclusion from envisioning to systemization. We'll describe some of the challenges organizations face and talk about how these challenges can be overcome or prevented. Finally, we will describe how to manage the process to foster buy-in and increase performance.
Throughout the webinar, we will put inclusion into a context of how organizations would solve any other operational problem. This webinar frames the challenge by recognizing that Gender & Inclusion goals are operational problems that require operational solutions, with investment and focus.
