Creating an Inclusive Environment

Presented by Hub International

Stacy Backes, MBA, SHRM-SCP, PHR-CA

Does your organization feature a workplace culture where everyone is able to contribute their highest level of performance? Creating a culture in which people feel respected and appreciated requires a sustained level of effort, empathy, and investment. HR and organizational leaders are called upon to work closely together to realize the vision of an authentically inclusive workplace.

We can think of diversity as being similar to selecting people for a chorus who have different musical backgrounds, vocal ranges and abilities. The inclusion piece means ensuring all employees are heard and valued as they contribute to the success of the organization. When employees who are different from their colleagues can flourish in a safe environment, the company benefits from their ideas, skills, discretionary effort, and engagement. The retention rate of those workers also rises.

But, how to begin a cultural change initiative, especially in a community that does not – visually – appear to be very diverse? Stacy Backes of HUB International will provide ideas, tips, and tools to help you and your organization’s leadership move toward a more inclusive culture.

Key topics will include:

  • Identifying Company Values/Culture
  • Developing a shared language – Defining Diversity, Equity, Equality, & Inclusion
  • Impact of Microaggressions & Implicit Bias on Culture and Work Relationship
  • Understanding Allyship and How to be an Ally
