The culturally intelligent organization by Mercedes Naficy D’Angelo and Nitin Deckha, SIETAR Tri-State group, 22 June 2022, 11am-12pm EST.
The SIETAR Tri-State group (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut) has organized another webinar, and CID followers are again invited to participate.
This session explores how to create an intentional culture of inclusion strategically. Addressing DEI is not about checking the box by simply offering training. While training is an important element in a DEI program, taking the pulse of an organization’s current culture, via a “Lived Experience Survey” and focus groups, offers valuable insight into the examining the dimensions of diversities in an organization, which can then be leveraged to enhance an organization’s diversity, equity and inclusion strategy. This involves identifying the strengths and weaknesses of an organization’s culture and subsequently designing programs to address those weaknesses, thereby providing a more effective DEI approach. Furthermore, when senior leadership better understand the complexity and range of their organization’s culture, they are more able to see the intersections of cultural identities and experiences and the importance of building equity and inclusion with intention and purpose. This culturally-intelligent strategic approach offers greater accountability and with more immediate results.
