Measuring DEI: Beyond Simple Counts to Impactful Engagement

Presented by: Organizational Ignition

You have made the decision to embark on a DEI initiative. Good. Now how do you know whether or not your effort is successful? Management guru Peter Drucker said that “if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.” That applies to DEI. If you can’t measure DEI in your organization, you can’t improve it. Join us for a discussion of measuring a DEI initiative.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • identify and calculate the metrics that are important in a DEI initiative
  • gather data about your DEI initiative
  • analyze the data and draw conclusions from the analysis.

Women in the Workplace

Presented by: Organizational Ignition

Research has shown that organizations that truly engage women at all levels outperform those organizations that do not. And despite claims to the contrary, research also shows that truly and equitably engaging women equitably is not happening in the US.

This session explores how organizations can create an environment where women are treated equitably while helping to drive innovation and sustainable performance.

Age in the Workplace

Presented by: Organizational Ignition

There are a record 5 generations in the workforce. Yet our society and employers seem to value only the younger ones. Research has shown that youth focus to be short-sighted when it comes to achieving superior organizational performance.

This workshop describes how organizations can innovate and beat the competition by engaging all generations.

DEI For Managers

Presented by: Organizational Ignition

DEI is a proven way to elicit superior performance from teams and individuals. But that performance does not just happen by itself. Even if there is a DEI Plan, that plan needs to be carried out day-to-day. So, how do you bring diversity into your group? How do you engage everyone equitably so that they perform at their best and your team performs at its highest level? This workshop explores how to embed DEI into your daily work as a manager.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • create a culture for your group to live into DEI
  • include DEI in the recruitment, hiring, and retention
  • encourage DEI in your team’s communication, decision-making, and general project management.

Active By-Stander Training

Presented by: Organizational Ignition

You are minding your own business in a store or on a bus. You see someone bullying a person who looks as if he/she is not capable of handling the situation. What do you do?  In a time when people are quick to express anger and more likely to be angry at people “not like them”, many of us are seeking tools to respond effectively to such biased anger.

This highly interactive training will give you tools and insights to use in such situations and a chance to think about how you might use them.  We present information, share experiences and strategize bystander responses to a variety of situations.

Learning Objectives
At the end of this session you will:

  • Understand the roles in situations
  • Understand what discourages us from acting when we see harm doing
  • Understand how to move through this resistance to action
