Creating Cohesive and Inclusive Workplace Cultures (Part 1)

Uni­ty in Diver­si­ty: Build­ing a Cul­ture of Inclusion 

This lead­er­ship and team series con­tains two work­shop mini-series. Each one is designed to help ele­vate work­place cul­ture through recog­ni­tion of the val­ue and con­tri­bu­tion that diver­si­ty, equi­ty, and inclu­siv­i­ty add to an orga­ni­za­tion. First, by iden­ti­fy­ing and under­stand­ing per­son­al, team, and orga­ni­za­tion­al key guid­ing prin­ci­ples, and then by using this learn­ing to increase belong­ing, safe­ty, and pur­pose by active­ly engag­ing in a col­lec­tive applied learn­ing project.

Set­ting the Stage (Ini­ti­a­tion Session) 

As part of best prac­tices in adult learn­ing, an ini­ti­a­tion ses­sion of approx­i­mate­ly 30 min­utes (may vary depend­ing upon the num­ber of par­tic­i­pants) will serve to set the stage for fos­ter­ing a pos­i­tive, inclu­sive learn­ing envi­ron­ment. The objec­tives of the mini-ses­sion will be the following: 

  • Meet the facilitator(s)
  • Cre­ate a learn­ing community
  • Invite learn­ers to intro­duce themselves
  • Dis­cuss learn­ing out­comes for the sessions
  • Share expec­ta­tions for group and indi­vid­ual success
  • Answer ques­tions / share oth­er rel­e­vant details

4. Par­tic­i­pants will acknowl­edge the impor­tance of being aware of core val­ues by con­sid­er­ing the impact that aligned and diver­gent val­ues, beliefs, and moti­va­tions can have on work­place cul­ture, and iden­ti­fy sup­port­ive ways to use this information.
