What’s the distinction between diversity and inclusion? It’s important to listen carefully to conversations about diversity and inclusion. Although they mean different things in practice, the terms “diversity” and “inclusion” are often used interchangeably. Many organizations have yet to adopt practices that truly promote inclusion.

Ideally, the diversity and inclusion commitment that an organization espouses aligns with what employees actually experience. When employees experience high levels of organizational, work-group, and supervisor inclusion, they report the most favorable outcomes in terms of individual engagement, job performance, and intention to stay with the organization. Group processes and organizational performance outcomes are also best when all three forms of inclusion align.

Learning Objectives

  1. Examine the differences between diversity and inclusion
  2. Identify group processes and performance outcomes impacted when D& I efforts align

This program is ideal for: Organizational leaders and managers
