Promote Diversity in the Workplace

Promoting diversity in the workplace requires moving past just awareness and developing a thorough strategy to mobilize leaders, activate habits, and reimagine talent management systems. NLI is focused on helping your businesses move past awareness to start changing behaviors and embedding habits by focusing on these four components:

Mobilize Leaders

Leadership buy-in is essential to driving diversity initiatives in your workplace. As organizational role models, workplace leaders can help make diversity a priority and allocate resources to achieve it. Some strategies for mobilizing your workplace leaders include leadership coaching, 1:1 sessions, diversity and inclusion research briefings, listening circles, employee engagement surveys, and town halls.

Build Strategies

In the modern workplace, organizations must have solid strategies and plans for increasing diversity. At NLI, we deploy scientists and consultants to analyze your workplace’s current diversity initiatives and identify areas for improvement. NLI has all the expertise necessary to bridge the gap between your current state and future diversity goals.

NLI gives you the tools you need to begin mitigating bias so that your diverse teams can reach their full potential.
