This presentation examines organizations as open systems including what this means for the leadership of the organization and for stakeholders including employees. The talk examines systems, processes, and talent development. Emphasis on employee engagement as a means to develop an inclusive organizational culture and minimize turnover, especially turnover of diverse employees. Questions such as how to lead an organization to ensure that the organization does not stop with recruiting a diverse workforce; but rather that employees receive intercultural competency training since inclusion does not happen by accident.
It’s no longer enough to treat others as you would like to be treated. An inclusive organization treats others as THEY would like to be treated. The talk will review real-world efforts by select organizations.
