Leathwaite has collaborated with a group of Senior Executives to understand their learnings, lessons and observations on driving DEI.
Creating an inclusive environment is a long-term approach and the only way we can create a truely diverse workforce. We share some of these executives’ learnings and advice on making material DEI progress.
- Allow for professional individuality
- Don’t make assumptions
- Be intentional
- Inclusion goes beyond the office
- Inclusion also goes beyond HR
- Look out for the subtle
- People, not technology, make for inclusive environments
- Harness your superpowers
- Role-modeling remains key
Humanity is facing some difficult challenges, but there are aspects of the “here and now” that we can start acting on today. Our contribution to this topic will support the continuation of an ongoing mantra for many to maintain focus on inclusion. Resulting, we hope, in positively impacting broader DEI topics.
