Hosted by Maja Luckos (Head of People Analytics UK) and Laura Gardner (HR Manager and UK Diversity and Inclusion Lead) at Capgemini.
HR functions have been proactively championing and pushing the D&I agenda for a long time; but does it have the required buy-in from the rest of the business or is it still just a ‘tick-box’ exercise for many organisations?
It’s often easy to find yourself repeating the same practices out of habit without reflecting on their tangible outcomes and demonstrating the genuine value for undertaking them. But do we have a clear understanding of what we’re trying to achieve in the first place and why? Some businesses still don’t seem to have this clarity when it comes to D&I.
Viewing D&I as a business strategy, as opposed to an HR initiative, is absolutely paramount. The diversity agenda has to be weaved into the business’s ‘bigger picture’ plan and given the backing to determine meaningful and measurable aims and objectives.
This Diversity Think Tank will explore Capgemini’s journey of implementing D&I as a true business strategy, and ultimately a cultural change programme. Join us at this Think Tank when we’ll be addressing the following:
- Obtaining that initial buy-in and backing from the business
- Creating a framework to support the execution of the D&I strategy
- Implementing and sustaining the momentum of employee networks
- Identifying key measurables and success indicators both internally and externally
- Managing the expectations of customers who might be affected by D&I initiatives e.g. increased flexible working.
