This Episode: Practical Diversity: Inclusion Strategies

This week, Lucinda discusses the ways in which we can improve diversity and inclusion within our organisations in practical ways, and the steps we can take in order to establish a more measured approach to effecting real change.

Key Takeaways

  • We must examine the culture that our organisations hold dear. Are our policies merely paying lip service, or do they aim to create lasting change?
  • Events such as holidays and celebrations need to embrace a far more holistic overview, taking into account many more cultures and backgrounds than we may currently support.
  • We can often judge the outside perception of how our company tackles diversity and inclusion by looking at the types of people who are applying to be a part of it.
