Lead an Inclusive Team

Lead an Inclusive Team

Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is a phrase that we hear a lot these days. However, for many of us, the focus always seems to be on the “Diversity” part. Diversity can be measured quantitatively. It’s easy to say “we need a diverse workforce” and measure the results. If we avoid focusing on the inclusion part this can lead us to lose the diverse workforce that we have created by not making those staff members feel valued, safe and be accepted for who they really are.

Inclusion means making employees feel included, and that’s not so easy to track. But without inclusion, it's difficult to create lasting diversity.

Maintaining a Diverse Workforce

Diversity and Inclusion go hand in hand, you can’t have one without the other. It is important to be flexible - understand who your individual team members are and what they need to thrive as part of your team. Striking a balance between structure and flexibility will allow your team to move forward in alignment and create an environment where they feel they can bring their whole selves to work.
