Workplace Inclusion Industry experts from Gradient will present an interactive workshop on Workplace Inclusion.

We will uncover how people and culture leaders, managers, and senior executives can work together to build diverse workforce, advance equity, and create a culture inclusion and belonging.

Inclusive recruitment and onboarding Participants will begin with a look at what inclusive recruitment means and three key tips for successful processes. Next, we will help you transform your on-boarding and first 90 days of the employee experience to support retention and early inclusion.
Retaining and developing talent across identities Participants will continue the workshop by exploring how the unique strengths, communication styles, emotional intelligence capacity, and cultural literacy of employees will help create environments where employees are valued and able to contribute in their own unique way. This content will allow people leaders to reflect on current management practices and add new practices to enhance the development and inclusion of employees.
Building an inclusive culture where employees belong Participants will end the session by discovering how to combine all five ingredients they need to develop an inclusive culture evidenced by employee engagement and reporting on employee satisfaction surveys.
