Roadmap for Cultural Inclusion Assessment

Thursday, December 1 | 8:30 to 10am

Presenter: Sesha Yalamanchili, President & Founder, On the Mark Consulting

You may already be measuring Diversity by quantifying how much representation there is of different groups in your organization. Likewise, you maybe measuring Equity by tracking how fairly you are paying people.

Yet, most organizations are still searching for an effective way to measure Inclusion.

Without a reliable way to measure cultural inclusion, in the moment and over time, you cannot gauge if your organization is getting better or worse, nor which programs and actions lead to greater levels of Inclusion for employees.

Most of us are looking for ways to gauge Inclusion factors such as these:

  • Are we improving team environments, so our employees feel heard, seen, and valued?
  • Do we know what specific improvements our leaders need to take to create more inclusion on their teams?
  • Are we aware of disparate inclusion experiences across different employee populations?

Join us for this session where we will present a roadmap for success with measuring cultural inclusion in your organization. We will arm you with best approaches for assessing employees’ feelings of being seen, heard, and valued in your organization.
