Anatomy of Inclusion
Many organisations are attempting to focus on enhancing workplace culture and creating an environment that fosters a sense of engagement among employees. Inclusive organisations understand-and seek to capture-the power of a varied cognitive landscape, and the resulting rise in performance and productivity when people feel that their contributions to corporate success aren’t simply measured in one-to-five scales and hours worked.
Our belief is that an inclusive, respectful environment is as inextricably linked to individual and organisational performance as the education, skills and remuneration of the workforce. Creating a working culture where all people can achieve their full potential is a 21st century business imperative.
The Anatomy of Inclusion programme allows participants to be guided through frank conversations about the status quo of inclusivity and the desire within organisations to expand, and then maximise cultural diversity. APS uses the best contemporary science on inclusion, explained through stories and vingnettes that make the concepts relevant and relatable to a broad cross-secition of people. Content will challenge participants, demand introspection, and inspire positive change.
Many organisations design and implement diversity initiatives to meet basic compliance standards or as an anti-litigation measure. Yet they underestimate the energy wasted by individuals protecting themselves in environments that do not embrace diverse identities – energy that might otherwise be used for furthering organisational goals and outcomes.
