"Diversity & Inclusion isn't just about respect and camaraderie.
It's about attracting and developing high-potential talent
to achieve bottom-line results!"

“As I look around today’s D&I learning environment, I see the results of decades of well-intentioned attempts to create more diverse and inclusive workplace cultures, through a focus on numbers and a tendency to rely on generalized D&I training experiences that we’ve learned often hurt more than they help. It’s time to go deeper.

It’s time to start relying on research, instead of good intentions. It’s time to invest meaningful time, energy and financial resources in truly creating diverse and inclusive environments in which all team members can thrive.

I’m talking about the kinds of environments that drive innovation, enhance productivity, minimize D&I liability risks, and add to the bottom line.  Let’s stop being facile. Let’s stop being so fake. Let’s work together to find out how your organization can become sustainably and profitably diverse and inclusive!”

What’s the Elephant in Your Room?

Is there a group of team members that it’s still “okay” to marginalize, within the company culture?

Do all team members feel safe approaching supervisors and HR with diversity- and inclusion- related concerns?

Do they believe they’ll be heard?

Are some of your team members afraid to ask questions or deal with important issues, because they feel they may be perceived as offensive – or worse?

Ignoring the elephant in your team’s room won’t make it go away. Let’s dance with it!
