DTT – Taking Managers on the Diversity and Inclusion Journey
November 28, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm| Free
Hosted by Steve Saville (Director of HR Business Partnering, UK & Ireland) and Kellie Hick (Senior HR Business Partner) at Dentsu Aegis Network.
Developing an internal culture that enhances and promotes diversity and inclusion is paramount. Not just from the obvious moral perspective, but from the standpoint of continuing to develop an organisation’s products and services through a diverse and an engaged workforce. As such, many businesses now find themselves responding to often ambitious diversity targets around gender, race, disability and sexual orientation.
When thinking about building an inclusive culture, one of the obvious starting points is to ensure your leadership and management population are bought into your objectives and are supported to deliver against these goals.
At this Diversity Think Tank, hosted by Dentsu Aegis Network, we’ll be exploring the different facets involved in fostering an inclusive culture through your manager community. Typical talking points will include:
Buy-in – capturing the commitment and understanding of managers into the importance of D&I
Training – ensuring managers are sufficiently trained around unconscious bias in both hiring and the professional development of staff
Confidence – supporting the management population with tools to address sensitive situations with confidence
Accountability – articulating your managers’ role in the D&I agenda and holding them to account
Measurement – evidencing the impact of the inclusive culture back to the business
