Your organization’s people look to your leadership for guidance and direction. One area where you have an opportunity to communicate with transparency is decision making about topics that impact the employee experience, financials and strategic plan. A second area is how the external environment, such as the pandemic, war and ongoing calls for social justice, is impacting the need to revisit the organization’s mission and ability to effectively meet it. Because trust is a foundational element of an inclusive culture, it is essential for leaders to communicate the impacts of external events and how it impacts the internal DEIJ strategy in order to sustain employee and organizational commitment.

Join this session and understand how to:

  • Identify areas of opportunity where transparent communication is necessary
  • Communicate effectively with transparency to staff to advance DEIJ
  • Distinguish barriers that hinder DEIJ success
  • Employ different strategies for communicating DEIJ internally and externally
