According to a recent McKinsey study, when an organization’s leaders focus on inclusivity, employees are 1.7 times more likely to feel very included compared to organizations and leaders who do not make the effort. Being an inclusive manager requires actively acknowledging what is happening in the world with your team, leading discussions that may feel new or uncomfortable, and ensuring that all team members feel that they belong. Join us on August 1st from 12pm - 1pm CT for a preview of Inclusive Management led by Alana Hill. This program gives leaders a framework to build team cohesion, create safe spaces, and empower others to be allies and upstanders in the workplace.
