Course Description

Leading an Inclusive Work Environment…Beyond “D.I.N.O” (Diversity In Name Only)

Recent societal events have given rise to the importance of diversity and inclusion in organizations. The words diversity and inclusion are often used interchangeably, but they are conspicuously different. Frequently, leaders believe when they achieve diversity the job is done. But it’s not! If your organizational culture does not embrace different people and perspectives, you will not be able to retain the diverse talent you hired. The measurable result is turnover; the perceptual result is tokenism...or “D.I.N.O” – “Diversity In Name Only.” Inclusion requires that everyone's contributions be valued, that individuals - regardless of their ethnicity, nationality, race, identity, culture, heritage or gender - have the opportunity to do their best work and advance. So, does your organization practice “D.I.N.O” – “Diversity In Name Only” or is it inclusive? This course examines the difference, provides strategies to become inclusive thereby improving overall departmental and organizational productivity.
