Elevating Equity is not a traditional diversity, equity, and inclusion program. Instead, this is a Program centered on effective actions that drive real, measurable change. Addressing our organizations’ systemic inequalities is a challenge that taps into the very core of our most essential responsibility as managers: to take care of our people. This challenge also poses the opportunity for us to lead one of the most important strategic business initiatives of the decade as we grapple with the complexities of creating organizations that actively foster cultures of innovation and resilience.
This Program is built to equip you to meet that challenge. It can either accompany existing DEI training or kickstart an organization’s foundational strategy by giving managers and leaders practical tools to immediately begin making a difference. The Program is designed to push the envelope when it comes to reshaping our approach to DEI, while also elevating the role of managers and leaders in making our organizations more equitable and just in the communities we serve.
It is built for a global audience, and the tools, challenges, and discussions are meant to help you think through the many layers of diversity and inequity in your specific region or organization. It features a combination of global leadership stories, diverse perspectives, and valuable insights—all designed to evoke conversations around the complexity of this work and how we can continue to evolve our practice.
