C-News: October 2016
The Conversation Imperative
“Equality is not in regarding different things similarly, equality is in regarding different things differently.”—Tom Robbins

Let’s face it, working with people day in and day out who are different can be hard. And with everything going on in the world today, sometimes it seems easier to pretend we’re all the same rather than discuss our obvious differences. But we’ve found the opposite to be true. Having important conversations about race and gender actually brings people closer and creates new levels of understanding. Being silent, a choice we often make to play it safe and not stir the pot, actually makes things worse.

In this issue of C-News we feature a sneak peek at our new research products—being released over the next couple of weeks—that will help you have those conversations, as well as highlight organizations that have put that into practice, with successful results. In other words, it’s time to talk.

REPORT: The Day-To-Day of Experiences of Workplace Inclusion and ExclusionREPORT
The Day-To-Day of Experiences of Workplace Inclusion and Exclusion

On a day-to-day basis, we often experience both inclusion and exclusion at work. But we generally remember feelings of exclusion more vividly. And even though our research has uncovered what inclusion is (Inclusion = Uniqueness + Belongingness) it’s difficult to pinpoint it in day-to-day experiences. Yet it’s easy to identify what being excluded is like. Our latest report helps leaders ensure that their organizations and their employees both reap the return on inclusion and mitigate the cost of exclusion.

We also have two webinars on this topic.
  • Sign up for part I to learn what distinguishes the most inclusive workplaces from those that fall short of this ideal.
  • Sign up for part II to learn concrete strategies that leaders and organizations have relied on to make employees’ day-to-day experiences more inclusive.
TOOL: Engaging in Conversations About Gender, Race, and Ethnicity in the WorkplaceTOOL
Engaging in Conversations About Gender, Race, and Ethnicity in the Workplace

Discussing how some aspects of our identities differ from other people’s can feel uncomfortable, accusatory, and potentially threatening, especially in the workplace. While you may have good intentions, you may not know how to address a topic that is potentially uncomfortable. Our latest tool showcases the many benefits in talking about gender, race, and ethnicity in the workplace, and sets you up with simple steps you can take to start life-changing conversations.
