Your leadership behavior will set the tone for diversity
Become an inclusive leader
With an inclusive leadership style you leverage diverse perspectives, lifestyles and backgrounds. Thereby driving your workforce towards innovation, happiness and success.
Inclusion is often neglected as a leadership task. But leaders always set an example for the rest of the workforce. If leaders do not promote diversity and inclusion via their behavior, it probably doesn’t become reality. If not, Women in Tech & Digital are more hardly retained.
What can be done
Leadership to foster inclusion can be learned and practiced. Instances where leaders interact with staff or external actors are crucial for making a difference. With a coach the leader learns how to behave in these moments.
Women in Tech & Digital working at the company as well as other employees start to believe what they see - inclusion becomes a part of the culture. This ensures easier recruitment of diverse backgrounds, a mixing of leadership crews as well as unlocking the full potential of teams.
