Creating a Culture of Inclusion In the Workplace
Recorded On: 12/03/2020
Respect among coworkers provides an important foundation for a successful workplace. But it doesn’t end there. An organization must acquire a breadth and wealth of competencies to fulfill its promise of an inclusive and collaborative workplace. In this high-level, interactive webinar, we will discuss what it means to have an inclusive work culture and the importance of getting commitment and buy-in from the top. Dr. Davis will explore what roles and behaviors are needed to transform the workplace, what to look out for when recruiting and retaining employees, and give participants tools for creating a work culture that works for everyone. The goal of this session is to help organizations not only realize the importance of inclusion but also affect change in their workplace culture for the better. At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Reconcile your own feelings and beliefs around inclusion
- Understand common language and definitions (diversity, inclusion, equity, belonging, access, bias, and unconscious bias)
- Help leaders lead with a mindset of inclusion by developing inclusive behavior
- Create an inclusive workforce through recruiting and retention
- Use tools and tactics for creating a more inclusive work environment
This 60-minute session was recorded during the Fall Conference for Animal Welfare 2020.
This recording is also part of the free Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Training Package.
