What can employers do to create an inclusive workplace?

December 12, 2016


Are we all, as citizens, being given an equal opportunity to succeed in the workplace? There are laws in place that support Inclusion and diversity in the U.S., including the Equal Pay Act of 1963, Civil Rights Act of 1964, Age Discrimination Act of 1967 and Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. But how do we go about putting these laws into action? What can help promote the inclusive workplace that reflects our diverse nation?


 The following tips will help:

  • Create a confidential "safe space" for employees to go and speak about how they feel.

  • If you haven't already, form a Diversity and Inclusion board in your organization. This voluntary board's job is to make sure that new and existing policies and procedures of the organization are inclusive of all employees.

  • Disseminate a list of helpful resources for employees that include mental health services nationally and in their local area.

  • Designate "inclusion leaders" in the organization, specifically in higher positions, who any employee in the leader's department can speak to about diversity and inclusion, regardless of position.

I partner with individuals, teams and organizations to develop human potential and to support others to include more effective communication and improved relationships. Those who take part in the training programs will find reduced anxiety, depression and other signs of stress, while increasing job satisfaction and morale – both professionally and personally.Your team will discover new ways to approach challenges, impact your bottom line, and increase your influence. Start with these above suggestions, and you are well on your way to the inclusive environment your company deserves!
