Thinking of ways to integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion into our workplace practices can be a daunting task. This presentation goes through shared understanding of diversity, inclusion, equality, equity, and justice and offers considerations to creating a brave and inclusive environment in order to have these conversations. The presentation also goes over one potential action step of creating a share space for diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
KEY CONCEPTS/TAKE AWAY:
- Diversity is a fact, inclusion is a choice and equality, equity, and justice can be both outcomes and processes.
- . There are several elements that need to be considered when thinking about integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion into our practice, including where the organization may fall on the DEI continuum, thinking about accountability, creating and elevating psychological safety.
- Accountability: Paying close attention to how one operationalizes diversity, equity, and inclusion and being transparent of those charged with certain tasks. It is also about defining ways in which we will support efforts not yet reached.
- Psychological Safety: Human need to connect and belong. According to Kenneth Clark, there are four developmental stages, of which the final stage leads to innovation and elevated levels of productivity.
- Power and Intersectionality: If you don’t name your powers, they will show up in your practice. It is important to understand the privileges and marginalization’s that each of us may have to gain semblance of how to leverage them in order to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.
