Human potential is unleashed when we feel like we belong. That’s why inclusive workplaces experience higher engagement, performance, and results. But the reality is that many people still feel unable to bring their true selves to work. They are spending valuable energy every day minimizing or managing aspects of their own diversity – of identity, background, experience – in order to succeed. This takes a particular toll on diverse talent – women, people of color, LGBT individuals, people with disabilities – at a time when organizations are struggling to recruit, retain, and develop those same individuals. But all of us, and the business, pay the price.
We now find ourselves living through a time of great uncertainty and change, while navigating multiple concurrent crises. As we navigate our new reality, we have an unprecedented opportunity to come together around our shared experiences, and to work together as allies, advocates and accomplices, to build the future of work and create cultures of inclusion where everyone can thrive. Drawing on years of work with many leading organizations, Jennifer Brown, workplace Diversity and Inclusion expert, and author of Inclusion and How to be an Inclusive Leader, shows what leaders at any level can do to spark real change.
