Identifying effective initiatives to improve the diversity of organisations requires leaders and change agents to think of diversity as a wicked problem.
Wicked problems are complex rather than just complicated, have no one apparent solution, and solutions themselves often create unintended consequences.
In recent years, there has been heavy investment in every sector in Australia on Diversity and Inclusion initiatives aimed at increasing the diversity of organisations, especially at leadership levels. However, progress on gaining real change and traction remains glacially slow.
Wicked problems require wicked solutions. Yet too often we see Diversity and Inclusion initiatives that only ever address the symptoms of the problem not the root of the cause.
The disrupted world of work demands more progress on diversity and inclusion than ever before. If your business is looking to achieve a real-step change in diversity and inclusion outcomes then this is the program for you.
Diversity and Inclusion By Design will help your leaders and hiring managers, HR and Diversity and Inclusion practitioners develop the skills to lead and deliver effective and engaging Inclusion and Diversity programs, improve trust with your employees, and build a better culture for innovation and collaboration in your business.
Leveraging proven techniques for innovation, this highly interactive and insightful program, will help participants develop the skills of active listening and empathy and encourage collaboration and creativity in the design of effective and ground-breaking diversity and inclusion strategies, programs and initiatives.
It is delivered as a full-day design workshop with two follow-up two-hour cohort coaching sessions – including a final recall session. Other bespoke delivery options can be tailored to specific client needs.
