May Program Meeting/Return on Inclusion

Inclusive Leadership

Categories: TAHRA Program Meeting
Presented by Joe Gerstandt

Due to an overwhelming response, registration for all events of the 2018 ROI Summit have closed. We will not take late registrations or walk-ins at this event. Thank you!

Leaders play a critical role in providing an inclusive employee experience, and research suggests that the wrong kind of leadership is one of the biggest barriers to inclusion. Not only is inclusion poorly understood, and often misunderstood by managers, inclusive leadership is simply not the path of least resistance. Even if we see the importance and value of inclusion intellectually, in the moment it makes life a lot easier if everyone just thinks and acts in the same ways. Inclusion is hard work and is about much more than having good intentions. Being an inclusive leader is not about “getting it,” “embracing it,” or having a killer business case for it…you have to actually do stuff, and Joe will help you figure out what that stuff is.

Starting with a simple, but actionable framework for understanding inclusion and what it means to be included, Joe outlines a basic toolkit for inclusive leadership.

Key takeaways:

  • A more tangible understanding of what inclusion is and how it can impact performance.
  • Exploration of dynamics which make inclusion difficult, including practices of traditional management.
  • Be introduced to a basic toolkit for inclusive leadership consisting of knowledge, behavior, and practices.
