Creating a Truly Inclusive Culture

The event will be held in Plaisterers' Hall, London on 9 November 2016

Having a diverse representation of talent in the organisation isn’t the goal. Instead, when diverse talent feels included, valued and a core part of the team without having to become like the norm, then their organisations see substantive gains in creativity, engagement and productivity. The event will be supported by a CRF research report. Sponsored by Mercer, the report will review how inclusivity is critical for workforce planning, recruiting, retention, creativity and innovation, performance, employer branding and market reach.

Timings: 09.00-16.00

Who is it for?
Senior leaders and HR professionals, diversity and inclusion leaders and talent practitioners who are interested in moving the culture from one of compliance to one of inclusivity.

Overview
Having a diverse representation of talent in the organisation isn’t the goal. Instead, when diverse talent feels included, valued and a core part of the team without having to become like the norm, then their organisations see substantive gains in creativity, engagement and productivity. Inclusive cultures are more than a collection of diverse perspectives. This session is about what an inclusive culture looks like and what we have to do to get there.

Content
The event will cover the following topics:

• distinguish inclusivity (culture and way of working) and diversity (counting numbers to assure representation)
• illustrate how inclusive cultures create organisations that thrive on adaptive change
• provide best practice examples of what inclusive business units and teams are doing that is unique – what’s working and how is it affecting performance
• lessons learned – what managers and companies can do; what training and support will make the most difference; and advice on next steps
identify what leaders of inclusive cultures do, and do not do, to foster the right climate.
