DIAL GLOBAL MAY HYBRID 2022 SUMMIT

Inclusive Leadership: Championing a Culture Of Inclusion & Allyship

Inclusive leadership is emerging as a unique and critical capability helping organisations adapt to diverse customers, markets, ideas and talent. For those working around a leader, such as a manager, direct report or peer, the single most important trait generating a sense of inclusiveness is a leader’s visible awareness of bias.

 

What makes people feel included in organizations? Many things of course, but mostly it comes down to leaders. Studies find that what leaders say and do makes up to a 70% difference as to whether an individual reports feeling included. And this really matters because the more people feel included, the more they speak up, go the extra mile, and collaborate — all of which ultimately lifts organizational performance.

 

The McKenzie Delis Review 2021 identified for both the UK & US markets 3 critical facets that need greater focus - these being Age , Social Mobility for both markets and Sexual Orientation & Religion for the UK & US respectively - we will also delve into these areas in greater depth as these are even more critical & need a stronger focus to deliver future success for inclusive leadership.

PANEL 4  3PM - 3:45PM GMT | Trend: Creating an Inclusive & Diverse Talent Strategy anchored from Social Mobility

Most big companies today have diversity and inclusion programs focused on issues of race and gender in the workplace. But in these initiatives, very few companies include socioeconomic class as a dimension. That can make white-collar workplaces alienating to professionals who grew up in blue-collar households — people scholars call “class migrants.” Class migrants report lower levels of belonging in the workplace, feel disadvantaged by lack of knowledge about the “rules of the game” in a corporate office, and are less often seen as a “good fit” due to arbitrary measures. 

 

A growing 2022 Trend will see more companies working to reflect the community’s social mobility within their workforces and their leadership teams. Companies will need to integrate class into the conversation in 2022 if they want to be inclusive and desirable workplaces tomorrow.

PANEL 5  4PM - 4:45PM GMT | Building and empowering diverse teams through inclusive leadership

Despite hearing about the advantages that people with disabilities can offer employers, too many companies still hold themselves back when it comes to hiring people with disabilities. They see hiring (some) persons with disabilities as being “the right thing to do” but do not see it as part of a talent strategy that will benefit the company and outweigh what they see as the potential complications, expenses and risk.

That mindset puts companies at a disadvantage when it comes to acquiring and leveraging the talent they need in today’s tight job market. However, many leaders are changing these outdated mindsets, forging new paths for talent management – and reaping the rewards.

In today’s panel our leaders will share their experience creating inclusive workplaces for those with disabilities both visible and invisible , discuss the benefits they’ve gained and give pragmatic advice for organisations who want to make a change.

PANEL 6  5PM - 5:45PM GMT | Why is a mutual respect of Religion and or Belief / Non Belief critical for inclusive cultures 

Balancing Religion and Interpersonal Relationships can be a challenge while many companies do allow open conversations on religion and appreciate the diversity this brings, it can also create tension when religious or non-religious beliefs clash. 

How can you avoid conflict by encouraging employees to be open about their faith and associated values, but setting clear guidelines on what constitutes professional business conduct at the same time.

PANEL 7  6:00 -6:45 GMT | How can the world of sport be more welcoming to the LGBTQ+ players and fans?

What can other organisations learn from Sport where the its very much at the start of the journey but is critical for LGBT+ Inclusion 

Is the world of sport a welcoming place for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and non-binary athletes? The fact that only two male professional footballers have publicly come out may tell a different story. While diversity and inclusion have climbed corporate agendas over the past decade, many LGBTQ+ athletes continue to face discrimination, discomfort, and even abuse. How can sport leaders create inclusive teams that allow trust, openness and authenticity for every type of sexual orientation and gender identity?

PANEL 9  1:00PM - 1:45PM GMT | :What does Ageism Look Like? Why is it critical to address Ageism for true inclusion?

According to AARP, 64 percent of workers have witnessed or experienced age discrimination. Even though there's been plenty of research that overturns common stereotypes about older workers, the new ways of thinking haven't been fully absorbed yet.

What does ageism look like? A 28-year-old female CPA might be told that she is “too young” to be a controller. A job candidate in his 50's could hear that the company is looking for a recent college graduate “with a lot of energy and no bad habits,” while an employee in her 60's might be counselled out of attending an industry conference, ostensibly to allow her to “take it easy this month.” Although ageism can certainly cut both ways, most complaints and studies have focused on the experience of the 50+ crowd. 

In today’s session, we’ll hear from leaders about how they have proactively addressed ageism in their organisations – from programs they’ve initiated to how they’ve routed out hidden bias.
