Diversity: Capitalizing on the Mix
Date: Available On Demand
In the last few years, a wealth of credible research has linked diversity with organizational success. McKinsey & Company, one particularly pertinent example, reports that companies in the top quartile for diversity are 35 percent more likely to outperform others in their industry financially.
But major obstacles get in the way. Unconscious bias impedes advancement. Work cultures force people to operate outside their natural strengths. Unawareness about the preferences of colleagues who differ interferes with productivity.
In this highly interactive webinar, we create awareness about the various dimensions of diversity, especially generation and gender. We explore unconscious bias, those blind spots that impact our decisions. We examine the different ways in which the genders perceive success and failure. We delve into the blend of generations in today’s workplace.
Diversity is the mix. Inclusion is making the mix work. Together, we’ll uncover strategies for connecting across differences and capitalizing on this vital mix.
