Managing A Diverse Workforce

  • Do’s

  • Recognize that this is a process for individuals and the organization

  • Do commit to building awareness, knowledge and skills related to diversity and inclusion over an extended period of time. This is not a one day workshop.

  • Do remember that people and work systems develop the capacity for being reflective and adapting new work styles.

  • Do know that both individuals and organizations are at various levels of awareness, knowledge and skills along the continuum.

Managing A Diverse Workforce

  • Don’ts

  • Do not assume that only certain employees benefit from developing diversity and inclusion skills and awareness. We all do!

  • Do not try to evolve a formula for working with different groups. Although you can develop awareness about racial, religious, or generational groups, do not assume everyone within that group will fit into a formula.

  • Do not forget elements of diversity that are often overlooked: sexual orientation, region, country of origin, disability, generation etc are all elements that impact communication, marketing, educations styles and safety for some groups that you come into contact with.

Tips for Creating An Inclusive Team

  • Link inclusion to specific behaviors that are likely to generate trust, openness and inclusion.

  • Communicate regularly with the staff about why inclusivity is important.

  • Don’t rely on the same advice from the same people all the time.

  • Don’t allow exclusionary or intolerant behavior to go unaddressed. Respond efficiently and with respect to behaviors that mock shame and insult or injure staff.
