Presented at the 2023 Virtual ACSG Conference
on 16 March 2023 from 15:00 - 15:45
This presentation is about diversity, equity and industry (DEI) in the workplace and how human resource departments can utilise trainings, workshops and measuring DEI. This is to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels safe to not only bring their whole self to work but to also provide psychological safety by protecting the employees’ psychological contracts. Case studies will also be presented where measuring and mapping diversity in organizations can go beyond HR and be a point of celebration of inclusivity in the workplace.
