Activities ideas to make your work place truly inclusive
Diversity & Inclusion (fondly known as D&I) is core to the culture of the majority of organizations. Every organization would have its own framework, policy and approach to progressively encourage diversity at its workplace. At beginning D&I goals revolved around increasing women employees at workplace , presence of women in core leadership group, policies to support women employees etc, the goals further extended to include people from different culture, regions etc and also specially abled employees.
The success in achieving implementation of D&I principles now needs to be extended to include LGBT community. The presence of LGBT community at workplace cannot be denied and organizations should start building policy framework around it if not done already. Pride month is a great opportunity for organizations to talk about their policies to support LGBT community and show a truly inclusive workplace.
