We all know the importance of diversity. In order to leverage your organization’s diversity, you must create an environment where all voices can be heard and valued. That’s the basis of equity and inclusion… and it’s everyone’s responsibility. Difficult diversity dynamics will happen… but you can make your workplace more caring, engaging, and respectful when you put equity and inclusion in action!
Tackling difficult conversations is hard for just about everyone… especially when it comes to the trickier workplace issues that seem to pop up when you least expect it. Let's T.A.L.K.™ Navigating Difficult Workplace Discussions is designed to assist managers and supervisors in dealing with difficult workplace situations. The program provides several difficult scenarios that managers may face when dealing with employees and each scenario utilizes an easy-to- use, four-step process for working through the employee situation.
If we're really honest with ourselves, we understand that leading and managing (even supervising) is not an easy task. There are all sorts of "gotchas" that wait for you in the workplace daily. Everyday Leadership™ was developed to help you, the leader/manager/supervisor, in your daily effort to foster better employee connections, communication and community within your organization - all the while working together toward one shared goal or vision.
Biases and societal stereotypes can influence our perception, judgment, language and actions. We may not be aware that we are engaging in behavior that may be offensive. Being aware of common stereotypes and biases (both hidden and explicit) can help you challenge negative assumptions about others. At the end of the day, it always comes down to one word… “respect.” Be sure to check your filters and look for ways to be inclusive and respectful.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In order to leverage our organization’s diversity, we must create an environment where all voices can be heard and valued. That’s the basis of equity and inclusion… and it’s everyone’s responsibility.

Organizations want productive and engaged employees who contribute to the bottom line... but just one aggressive employee can ruin it all. There are real consequences associated with crossing the line at work and more than money is what’s at stake for organizations of all kinds.

Each of us has a moral code. Sometimes that code is very clear to us. We may know we wouldn’t steal a jacket from a store or that we wouldn’t violently harm someone else. Sometimes, though, we aren’t quite as clear about how we’ll respond, especially when we’re caught off-guard and don’t have a lot of time to think about our response. We may want to please the other person, or we may think the other person won’t like us if we don’t do as asked.
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.
When it comes to inappropriate workplace comments (even joking and innuendo), sometimes it takes voicing your objections to the person more than once before they get the message. The idea is to be consistent. Each time that their behavior crosses the line you must confront them. Now, if you don't feel comfortable confronting them, document each incident and then go to human resources about the situation. This type of behavior is unacceptable.
