D&I Live Q&A: Live and Let Live. Can everyone really be themselves at work?
22 April 2022 @ 12:30 - 13:15Free
Inclusion invites everyone to be themselves at work. But what does that mean? What if you’re told your long beard cannot stay if you want a promotion? What if one team member has strong religious views and another openly describes themselves as queer? Where is the boundary between expressing oneself as an individual and maintaining a level of professionalism?
In other words, how do organisations allow for individuality while ensuring that there are professional boundaries in place?
That’s when Personal Values – the 4th of our 8 Inclusive Behaviours – come in. Inclusive Behaviours is how we help our clients develop an inclusive culture.
In this session we will be talking to Isabelle Labonte, head of Learning and Development at Creative Assembly, about her experiences of developing an inclusive culture that allows people to be themselves in the workplace. We will also talk about when conflicting personal values might generate friction and how to address that, as well as how corporate values set the tone and framework for alignment of personal values.
Join us to learn how to establish a team where everyone feels they belong.
