Inclusion + Belonging Symposium

June 2 @ 8:00 am - 12:15 pm

The research is clear: diverse, equitable and inclusive organizations outperform on profitability, talent retention and attraction, and innovation — and Northwest Florida’s economic growth depends on it.
When you fail to maximize women and minority talent or create a culture of equity, inclusion and opportunities for all, you effectively cut your talent pool as well as your customer base.
Successful companies and organizations build inclusive strategies into their strategic plans to attract and retain high-performance candidates from a diverse pool and create a sense of belonging. Culture studies published in Scientific America show that diverse teams significantly outperform homogeneous groups in innovation, problem-solving and retention of employees.
A strong culture of inclusion combined with a personal understanding of equity and cultural humility establish the foundation for success.
Employees with diverse backgrounds bring to bear their own perspectives, ideas and experiences, helping to create organizations that are resilient and effective, and which outperform organizations that do not invest in diversity.
During this interactive training, attendees will walk away with a greater understanding of:
— The relationship between cultural effectiveness and cultural humility, and develop a better sense of self-reflection
— How practicing cultural humility allows individuals to become culturally humble professionals and appreciate the journey of growth
— How bias is central to multicultural awareness, knowledge, and skill — Professionals must know how bias affects individuals of various backgrounds and cultures, be aware of their own bias, and be skilled at controlling bias
—The relationship between power, influence and privilege to strengthen their mentoring and retention of diverse populations
—How diversity, equity and inclusion will allow for organizational resilience and a supportive racial climate that appreciates the contributions of all!
