Empathy & Inclusion in the Workplace: Imperatives for Your Diversity Initiatives

Empathy and Inclusion in the Workplace: Imperatives for Your Diversity Initiatives

On Demand

Duration: 1 hour

About the Webinar

Effective empathy and inclusion in the workplace can change the game, shifting mediocre performance to a vibrant work culture that fosters the willingness of employees to invest discretionary effort and gain a sense of belonging. With increased levels of inclusion, all employees can experience enhanced curiosity, agility, and innovation – especially employees who are underrepresented and disadvantaged.

Join our Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) experts to explore the power of inclusion in the workplace. This exploration will leave you with examples of practical and immediately applicable acts of inclusion that have the potential to transform your organization’s human resource brand.

Positioning inclusion within the wider context of your equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives is imperative. We know from research that each component of EDI is necessary in order to make a sustainable transformation in individuals, teams, and organizational culture. At CCL, we use our REAL framework as a way to shift mindsets, behaviors, and practices towards more equitable, diverse, and inclusive leadership.

What You’ll Learn

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • The potential of empathy and inclusion in your organization;
  • 3 common forms of collateral damage to watch out for in your efforts to build empathy and inclusion; and
  • How to implement the 4 steps of REAL to:
    • Reveal relevant opportunities,
    • Elevate equity,
    • Activate diversity, and
    • Lead more inclusively.

We can partner with you to create custom leadership solutions to shift mindsets, behaviors, and practices toward more equitable, diverse, and inclusive teams and organizations. Learn more about how our EDI practice can help you fulfill your commitment to fostering greater empathy and inclusion in the workplace.
