Transform unconscious biases into an inclusive culture

Strategies to advance a diverse workforce's sense of belonging.



diverse employees felt they belong? What could your organization accomplish then?


A hint, incorporating diverse perspectives in business executions increases creativity, innovation, productivity, and profitability. But you know that. Research has been spouting such claims for years. So why has your leadership team not embraced diversity? Perhaps with the escalation of the #BlackLivesMatter, #StopAsianHate, and #Metoo movements (to name a few), organizations acknowledge they can no longer put their head in the sand. AND your customers will not tolerate performative inclusion.


Hiring diverse employees is a fact; inclusion is an act. How does your leadership team create an inclusive culture where colleagues feel their contribution counts?


Suzanne F. Stevens has traveled to over 60 countries. She has lived in various cultures for more than 7 years. She has been an entrepreneur for more than two decades and has interviewed hundreds of entrepreneurs and leaders from 25 countries. Most importantly, she has asked advocates, businesses, and community leaders from diverse genders, races, cultures, religions, genders, ages, sexual orientation, and abilities — “What do you need to feel like you belong?”


Through the answers, trends emerged to bake into your organization’s DNA to create an inclusive culture where everyone feels their contributions count.
