- One Hour Diversity Special12.00 pm
Successful organizations have their Diversity, Inclusion and Equity function positioned strategically and high enough in the organisation and its practitioners have enough autonomy and resources to do it well. There has recently been an explosion of diversity and inclusion work across Victorian workplaces and an emerging wave of diversity practitioners and consultants. With this comes new and emerging practices, ‘bold moves’, fad strategies, buzz words, overhauls or refreshes and ‘champions of change’. Because diversity challenges our deeply ingrained core beliefs about gender, disability, race, age, pregnancy and LGBTIQ, it can be difficult to shift hearts and minds. With this in mind: How do you stand out from the crowd? How do you decide on what to prioritize? How do you prove that your strategies are working? How do you make your case and get attention? How do you influence others and give them reason to act? How do you persuade people that change is happening and that it is good change? How do you ensure that the work has integrity and is authentic? This session will help you to design, refresh, strengthen and reposition your diversity & inclusion thinking and practice with a clear narrative, rationale and authenticity. If this resonates, then this one-hour special is for you.
