How to Build a Sustainable Pipeline where Diverse Talent Thrives

30 mins
  • Track - Frontier Strategies
  • Diversity Equity & Inclusion
  • Non-Technical

Despite a heightened focus on DEI+B, particularly in the wake of the recent Black Lives Matter protests around the world, more talks around corporate social responsibility and an increase in underserved women founders in STEM/Tech industries, there still remains significant gaps between talk and action at many companies.

LinkedIn data shows that while 69% of talent professionals agree their organizations are committed to more diverse hiring, only 47% feel their hiring managers are held accountable for interviewing a diverse slate of candidates so this equates to prepared diverse talent not having access for equitable hiring practices, recruitment or advancement in the workplace.

In this session we’ll explore and dig into ways recruiters, managers and team leads can not only recruit qualified diverse talent but prepare the company culture for their arrival and advancement in leadership roles.

Creating A Culture Where Your People Belong

60 mins
  • Track - Workshop
  • Diversity Equity & Inclusion
  • Leadership
  • Premium Only

A critical ingredient of high-performance in any organization is a culture of psychological safety. Belonging is essential to humans. In times of social unrest, anxiety, post-pandemic fear and overall life stress, it’s vital that organizations create a way to galvanize support and manage complex change to create a culture where every employee, regardless of their background, feels that they belong.

Because the need to belong is universal and fundamental, focusing on it has the power to draw in the entire workforce, even those who might feel excluded from — or threatened by — current DE&I directives.

Psychological safety at work doesn’t mean that everybody is nice to each other all the time. It means that people feel free to “”brainstorm out loud,”” voice half-finished thoughts, openly challenge the status quo, share feedback, and work through disagreements together — knowing that leaders value honesty, candor, and truth-telling, and that team members will have one another’s backs. It is an atmosphere in which people fearlessly engage, question, experiment, and deliver value rather than fearing, blaming, and spending time protecting themselves. In this workshop, you’ll develop skills for growing psychological safety in yourself, your teams, and your organization.

The Why: Organizations that focus on creating environments centered around promoting psychological safety see increased employee retention, improved productivity and performance, greater creativity and innovation and an elevated employee experience.

So, who is responsible for creating such safety? All of us! When we model and cultivate psychological safety, we enable greater transparency, closer relationships, improved collaboration, and better outcomes.

Key Takeaways:

  • Creating psychological safety in your teams during uncertain times
  • How to lean into your authenticity as a leader
  • Providing your team with the tools to show up in strength and confidence
