Removing Division From Diversity: Framing Your Mind to Help Others Get the Picture

Wednesday, June 26, 2024, 1:00 pm CT

Highlight the importance of DEIB, bring awareness to the obstacles of program implementation, and promote solution-minded thinking with this webinar, Removing Division From Diversity: Framing Your Mind to Help Others Get the Picture. Doing good for goodness’s sake sounds…good, right? However, with the increased focus on corporate social responsibility and work cultures, it is not simply right, but necessary. A lack of diversity in leadership can increase the difficulty of getting DEIB initiatives approved. Acknowledging the barriers in a way that creates partnership can move us from motivating change to inspiring it.

During this webinar, Marshall will cover:

Composition of Inclusion – Breaking down 6 points of inclusive environments 
  • Equality
  • Diversity
  • Equity
  • Acceptance
  • Belonging
  • Justice

Map Versus Terrain – Navigating toward an ideal while embracing reality 

  • Resistance to change
  • Lack of awareness
  • Resource constraints
  • Lack of buy-in from leadership
  • Limited time and availability
  • Fear of backlash
  • Resistance from dominant groups

Challenging Perspectives not People – Thinking outside the box of compliance and inside the box of compassion 

  • Motivation versus Inspiration
  • Evolving a perspective is easier than changing a mind
  • Protecting the people protects the company
