Radio Show #448: Creating an Inclusive Workplace
4 July |5:30 pm - 6:00 pm BST
Special Guest: Perinne Farque: Author of ‘Inclusion – The Ultimate Secret for an Organization’s Success’
Perrine Farque is an author, keynote speaker and inclusion and diversity expert. She spent her career empowering business leaders to leverage inclusion as their secret weapon. When she was working for Software and Technology vendors, she was often called “too aggressive” or “too emotional”, she was repeatedly looked over for promotions and pay rises, while her male counterparts were promoted to leadership positions all the time. She was also judged by the way she dressed when her male colleagues were allowed to wear whatever they wanted.
When she realized that non-inclusive work environments are the main cause of employee turnover and disconnection, she made it her mission to create more inclusive workplaces. In her earlier career in Technology, she has witnessed, first-hand, how inclusive leaders build the most engaged, the most collaborative and the most innovative teams in the world. She has seen inclusive business leaders inviting colleagues from under-represented groups to sit at the table and to speak up and that created some of the most productive work environments she has ever worked in her entire career.
“Inclusion – The Ultimate Secret for an Organization’s Success” is about helping professionals become the inclusive and empowering leader they always wanted to become. Studies show that 85% of employees are not engaged in the workplace. Statistics and research show over and over again that having an inclusive workplace builds employee engagement, boosts creativity, and adds to the net bottom line. This book helps business leaders define the impact inclusion has on an organization’s performance. It also explains how anyone can create true inclusion in their workplace and shares who must be involved in creating an inclusive workplace. The book also provides tips for conducting successful unconscious bias and diversity and inclusion training and it points out why every organization should prioritize inclusion. Ultimately, this book will empower leaders and professionals to become the inclusive leader they always aspired to become. Change doesn’t happen by accident. Change starts with each and one of us. Her hope is that the book will create a strong desire for all the readers to become a change agent to build a more diverse and inclusive society.
Join us as we discuss why every organization should prioritize inclusion.
