Session Description

An organization’s success depends on having an engaged workforce that benefits from meaningful work, clear direction, and the opportunity to learn. That workforce must also have a safe, trusting, and cooperative environment. Successful organizations have cultures of equity and inclusion that capitalize on the diverse backgrounds and characteristics, knowledge, sills, creativity, and motivation of its workforce, partners, and collaborators. They empower participation and promote a sense of belonging. But creating workforce processes that support high performance and that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion requires deliberate design in processes such as performance management, fostering organizational culture, performance development (training), career development and succession planning, and workforce engagement.

This highly interactive workshop will explore how to build the concepts of diversity, equity, and inclusion into the work environment. It will be facilitated by Trina Olson of Team Dynamics.

Specific areas of focus in this workshop include:

  • Determining the drivers of workforce engagement as well as workforce engagement itself, considering the differences in characteristics, preferences, expectations, and lived experiences of your workforce.
  • Fostering a culture that is characterized by open communication, high performance, and an engaged workforce that supports mission, vision, and values, promotes empowerment, equity and inclusion, and that benefits from the diversity of ideas, cultures, and thinking of your workforce.
  • Creating a performance management system that supports high performance, balances the needs of all workers, and considers the diversity in your workforce.
  • Designing a learning and development system that supports the personal development of workforce members as well as the organization’s needs, considering the diverse needs of your workforce.
  • Managing career development and succession planning, considering the diverse needs of your workforce and promoting equity.
