Changing demographics, current events, scarcity of top talent, and the need to increase employee engagement and productivity have put diversity and inclusion (D&I) front and center as a talent imperative. However, despite significant investments and research data that demonstrate a positive return on investment from effective D&I implementations, overall progress has been very modest. The discipline of change management—with its focus on setting the stage for change, understanding multiple stakeholder perspectives and tailored ways to involve them, building a coalition of support, and emphasizing sustainability—provides talent professionals with an organizational framework to design, launch, and propel effective D&I initiatives that will show lasting results. Join Marjorie Derven in this interactive webcast to explore how change management can be paired with D&I strategies and initiatives for improved organizational traction. In this webcast, you’ll: - Explore the key elements of change management and how these can be deployed to build a guiding coalition for D&I momentum. - Examine how to set priorities for D&I initiatives within the context of important organizational targets to create a virtuous cycle of support. - Help others learn how to take ownership of change to contribute fully to more inclusive workplaces. - Discover how change management can build positive D&I momentum for improved sponsorship, resources, and buy-in.
