Diversity and Inclusion isn’t the latest business fad. It’s not a tick box exercise and it won’t go away! Creating an Inclusive culture should be at the top of the leadership agenda, yet many companies appear to get lost in the rhetoric of inclusion and diversity, launching stand-alone initiatives and mandating training to all in the hope these are enough to bring about change. Yet, despite these good intentions and hard work, changing mind-sets and behaviours is hard. It takes years to unpick or reframe what’s gone before which is why for many the progress is either slow or non-existent. This is when Diversity Fatigue starts to set in.
Leaders become tired of promoting initiatives that fail to gain traction, resentment builds amongst managers and employees as they continue to hear promises that fail, and company morale is affected as employees lose hope that the status quo will ever change. This TEDx talk aims to share 5 key steps for helping leaders to overcome and move beyond diversity fatigue. Teresa will share her personal and professional insights into what it takes to create an inclusive workplace culture and how leadership actions can make the workplace better for its people. So, become the envy of your competitors and discover how to overcome and move beyond Diversity Fatigue. Diversity and Inclusion isn’t the latest business fad.
