Diversity Drives Innovation Workshop
November 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
Diversity and inclusion (D&I) is an imperative for organizations today. Diverse and inclusive teams come up with more and better ideas, select the most impactful ideas, and execute on those ideas with greater speed and adaptability. In short, designing teams and organizations for diversity and building a culture of inclusion are critical to navigating a fast-changing business world; for product development, brand, and attracting and retaining talent. That said, D&I is easier said than done. What does D&I culture and structure look like, and what role can you play in your own team and organization? In this hands-on, fast-paced workshop we will:
• Expand our definition of diversity and inclusion
• Connect diversity and inclusion to business imperatives
• Learn tools to better leverage the diverse perspectives and backgrounds of your teams and organizations
• Reframe and activate your own diversity
Caroline Mailloux, consultant at The Medici Group, will lead the workshop. The Medici Group is a solutions firm anchoring diversity and inclusion at the center of innovation and strategy. She brings over 10 years of experience in system design, culture design, strategy, and employee engagement across start-ups, nonprofits, and Fortune 500 companies globally. She is a passionate diversity and inclusion practitioner.
