Inclusion & Diversity, Leadership,

Practical Initiatives to Get Started On

Here are four practical ideas to implement change that has a staying, powerful and longterm impact at your company: 



1. Review Company Materials

Your handbook, onboarding policies, websites/digital media, career development, hiring practices - identifying demographics and underrepresentation, and make adjustments accordingly. Offer materials in a variety of languages and platforms.


2. Gather together to talk

Host informal meetings with executives, and create small groups of your team to come together for fireside chats or live webinars.


3. Tell Stories

Stories are a strong way to build empathy and representation. Welcome anyone to speak or present their story or ideas.

4. Communicate

Celebrate differences and acknowledge where your company has fallen short.
