Well, my first tip is to ensure that you have stakeholder buy in, because if you don’t have that from the top of the organization you really won’t be able to get an
inclusive environment built in. Secondly, I think the business needs to
make it a priority because really what gets measured gets
managed and so you have to set some goals for yourself and for the company as to how you’re
going to go about this. Third I think you need to celebrate
diversity that’s really important. We all know that
diverse teams perform better, companies that have more women on the boards outperform those who don’t, so really go
about celebrating it and have some fun with the diversity. Fourth is to make it a priority. It has to
be important within your organization to have an inclusive work environment.
It’s got to be number one in what you do. Then I think finally,
make it circular. Make it important to everyone within your
organization and outside of the organization, so that’s employees, that’s customers, it’s your business partners
and it’s getting involved in your community, so make it a circular priority.
