The Workplace Needs Work

Wednesday, August 12, 2020, at 2 pm ET

With every upsetting instance of scandalous or simply uncivil behavior in our workplaces, every conversation with a struggling student or colleague, and every external review that finds we aren't doing enough for diversity and inclusion in our business as usual, it's easy to wonder—how to begin? How can we understand and quantify the problems and successes in our workplaces, and then use the results to move forward? The issues don't go away in a virtual workplace. These days, some of the problems have become even more exacerbated in a remote or hybrid environment. Developing an inclusive workplace climate requires a clear understanding of the current situation. Taking action requires buy-in and a data-driven improvement strategy. This presentation will discuss elements of a successful workplace culture assessment and some strategies to address the results, now and into the future.
