DE&I workshops won’t change your company culture.
What I do differently…
I’ve spent the last few months delivering workshops, developing curriculum and frameworks, and creating open forums on Black Lives Matter for HR professionals, C-suite executives, managers, and employees committed to anti-racism and equality.
In order for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion work to go beyond the performative to truly change an organization’s corporate culture we must address what’s been missing (and what organizations have been avoiding):
1. A deeper understanding of how identity, power, and history inform our individual world views.
2. The universal ways of being, beginning with themes like Compassion, that inform our values and determine our actions. I believe this is the foundation upon which any sustainably diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace must be built.
Organizations don’t change, people do.
My work as a Compassionate Leadership expert combines DE&I education with empathy and emotional intelligence and I’m blown away by the feedback we’ve received so far! I’m excited to continue supporting the people-centric organizations that are truly committed to investing in sustainable, long-term change.
If this resonated with you, feel free to share it with others. Let’s make sure Black Lives Matter is a movement, not a moment!
