Inclusion 101™ Optimizing Our Diversity Potential

SOLLAH EXCLUSIVE!

Everyone wants to feel they’ve been heard and taken seriously about what’s important to them, right? That’s one way to describe inclusion. Inclusion is the feeling that we’re part of a team or organization. That we’re respected. Inclusion is a tool… a strategy or an approach. It exists when we create a culture that makes a space for everybody to be present and to participate and contribute – feeling valued.

Diversity 201™ - Look, I’m Color Blind!

Many people see being “color blind” as a solution to racial bias. But it can keep us from seeing what’s happening right in front of us. Our society as well as the workplace is not color blind. It never has been. Points of identity, like gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnic background or age… all matter to people. To say that you don’t see them is denying the existence of something that has a significant impact on our relationships.

Diversity 201™ - Are You Speaking English?

In today’s diverse world, we’re bound to encounter customers, vendors and even co-workers who speak English as a second language. When we are tired and frustrated it’s very easy to dismiss a person that’s struggling to speak English. Taking a moment to respectfully include customers who may not sound like us (or are easy to understand), we create equity... and powerful customer allies.

Diversity 201™ - More Than Meets the Eye

Personal style is just that – personal. Each of us has our own sense of fashion and identity that we express through our appearance. Each person is unique and it’s important that we don't let stereotypes keep us from getting to know the people that we work with. We need to respect and include others by looking beyond appearances… to see the person inside.

Diversity 201™ - Three Strikes

Each of us is a combination of many different aspects of our lives and we experience the world not just as one, but a blending of all of them. We must recognize that there are many facets of who we are: race, economic class, gender, even sexual orientation. These can impact how someone may experience workplace discrimination.

Diversity 201™ - She’s Young… And a Girl!

Sometimes it’s not about one type of bias but more about the ways in which biases can overlap. Equity and inclusion are about encouraging and listening to ALL voices. When ideas are dismissed or discouraged, or when there are negative consequences for speaking up, we miss opportunities for innovation and problem solving.

Diversity 201™ - An Overview

Inclusion is the intentional act of involving, empowering, and inviting all employees to contribute their best. It’s the key to achieving the advantage of diversity. Inclusion gives people a sense of belonging and the experience that they are welcomed, respected, valued, and treated fairly based on who they are and what they bring and contribute to the organization. Most organizations recognize the competitive advantage of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The Future of Work™ Generations in the Workplace

SOLLAH EXCLUSIVE!

Each generation brings its own unique work styles and expectations to the workplace, based on common experiences many of them share. Generational influences - like parenting styles, the pandemic, war, the economy, global impacts, popular culture and other defining moments or events - contribute to generational characteristics that are brought into the workplace. To have an inclusive workplace, you have to be intentional and willing to listen to others, gain perspectives, and make adjustments, with the ultimate goal of staying connected… across generations.

TrainingBriefs® A Good Fit?

There is a real danger that comes from making assumptions based on one aspect of a person - such as their name. We all want to be seen as a whole person and our name is just one part of who we are. This type of bias can be very subtle, and we may not even realize it’s even there. When we make decisions, like hiring, based on just the name of a candidate, we exhibit bias. We should instead look not for culture fit but for a culture add – what a person can bring to the team.

TrainingBytes® Are You Giving 110%?

Inclusion is making sure everyone has an opportunity to fully participate in the workplace – to be on the team. Inclusion is about recognizing and responding to the needs of all employees. It’s talking about co-workers in a supportive way, rather than criticizing them behind their backs. Most importantly, inclusion is about making sure work assignments and activities, including work-related social events, do not exclude or disadvantage anyone.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) - An Overview

We all use Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to identify ourselves. PII includes information like a driver's license number, an address, or a birthdate. Social Security numbers and biometric records such as fingerprints are also examples of PII. PII includes any information that can be used to distinguish or trace your identity - either alone or when combined with other information that is unique to you. Organizations must safeguard PII and limit access to it. Only those individuals with a "need to know" - that is, individuals with official authorized access to the information - may access and use a record or system of records containing PII.

TrainingBriefs® That’s a Stereotype!

A stereotype is a widely held, simplified belief about a specific group on the basis of sex, gender identity, race and ethnicity, nationality, age, socioeconomic status, language, and so forth. Stereotypes are deeply embedded within social institutions and wider culture. One important thing to remember is that we need to judge people based on their skills and abilities, not a preconceived stereotype, assumption, or bias.

TrainingBytes® The Invitation

Being a target of quid pro quo sexual harassment creates a workplace that's toxic. We all have the right to work in an environment free of harassment. Sexual harassment affects all of us, directly or indirectly. If not addressed, sexual harassment will create a hostile work environment that can lead to an expensive lawsuit.

TrainingBriefs® Make My Day!

It’s important to have clear policies and procedures to prevent, address, and resolve third-party sexual harassment and to educate and train your employees on how to handle such situations. It's also important for employees to report any incidents of third-party sexual harassment to their supervisor and/or Human Resources. By doing so, both the employee and the employer can protect their rights, dignity, and interests.

TrainingBytes® Let Me Get That For You

Under federal law, discrimination based on sexual orientation is illegal. In several states and local jurisdictions, there are laws which provide additional protections from harassment and discrimination based on perceived - as well as actual - sexual orientation. And if this kind of behavior happens in one of those places, coworkers may very well end up on the wrong side of a hostile environment harassment lawsuit.
