Perfect Together: Diversity and Inclusion and Change Management

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

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.
