INLEAD’s D&I activation model
Over the last few years we’ve observed how efforts to promote diversity and inclusion have spread and developed within organisations. But again and again we’ve also encountered frustration. In many cases, the success in terms of activating the potential of D&I through training and development programmes has borne no relation to the effort put in by the management team. To really take effect, D&I initiatives must include all the relevant dimensions of an organisation. Training and development programmes are pivotal and important, but they’re not enough on their own to ensure effective, sustained progress.
INLEAD has developed a comprehensive model for activating and harnessing the potential of diversity within your organisation. It addresses the issue on several levels:
- Strategy, organisation and processes
- Corporate and management culture
- Workers and leaders.
executive and line management are key to success.
The commitment of executive and line management is key to success
We deliberately focus on close partnership with your executives and line managers. They’re at the heart of devising and implementing a successful D&I strategy. Permanent inclusion is only possible with their involvement and commitment. They are the people
- who define strategy, design workflows and optimise processes
- who shape your corporate culture by leading by example
- who attract, develop and retain the talent crucial to the long-term success of your organisation.
INLEAD’s D&I activation model analyses in detail all the relevant dimensions within the organisation to then set the right strategic and tactical course.
To ensure you derive benefit from your D&I initiatives, all the different dimensions have to be aligned and developed coherently.
