"In diverse and inclusive environments, every team member is free to thrive.
Differences are leveraged to achieve goals that cannot be achieved
in atmospheres of sameness."

Inclusive leadership enhances performance.

“Teams with inclusive leaders are 17% more likely to report that they are high performing, 20% more likely to say they make high-quality decisions, and 29% more likely to report behaving collaboratively. What’s more, we found that a 10% improvement in perceptions of inclusion increases work attendance by almost 1 day a year per employee, reducing the cost of absenteeism.” – Juliet Bourke & Andrea Espedido: “Why Inclusive Leaders Are Good for Organizations, and How to Become One” (Harvard Business Review, 3/19/2019)

Who Can Benefit?

  • Senior leaders developing strategies to enhance D&I in their organizational culture – or even implement a system-wide, comprehensive D&I initiative

  • Managers wanting to address D&I concerns and/or opportunities – who don’t know where to begin!

  • HR professionals and teams needing to create, evaluate or improve their D&I- related policies, processes and procedures to optimize outcomes and reduce legal, ethical & PR risks

  • Organizations struggling to attract, develop and retain diverse talent

  • Startups developing foundational D&I ideals, vision and policies

  • Companies needing an expert, seasoned consultant with an “outsider perspective” to evaluate D&I vulnerabilities and opportunities – both in their teams and in their customer/client base

  • High-potential employees needing guidance and coaching to successfully integrate into their organizational culture

  • Diverse teams needing facilitation or mediation to resolve important, long-standing (or both!) culture-conflict issues

  • Groups and teams in which D&I cynicism or negative paradigms are undermining cohesion and performance

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!
