The world has shifted tremendously over the past months, and in the past several weeks. There are increased complexities, challenges, and disparities in how we are experiencing and navigating these times. Addressing racism in the workplace remains a priority but many organizations are struggling with where to begin. In this series, we are spotlighting Catalyst Supporters who have not shied away from transformative organizational initiatives to address racism.
The Culture of Inclusion (COI) Journey at Rockwell Automation (which started in 2007) is a culture-change initiative that comprises programs and strategies executed throughout the company’s businesses and functions. A key element of this strategy is that to make sustainable change, the dominant group—in this case white men—need to be aware of the impact of their privilege, be engaged, and partner with women and underrepresented groups in a meaningful way. During this webinar, you will hear from Rockwell Automation about:
- how they successfully implemented their Culture of Inclusion programming
- how it has evolved over the years
- how they created safe spaces and who leads these initiatives/areas
- how the White Men as Allies program has evolved into broader conversations over the years
- how this program is relevant to current discussions around racism
