Inclusive Organizations - Executive Training

Tuesday, April 20, 2021


Driving positive change and overall success through knowledge, understanding and action.

This program is a part of HR Tech Group’s Diversity and Inclusion Tech Project to increase the attraction, retention and advancement of women, Indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, newcomers to Canada, people of colour and individuals who identify as LGBTQIAS+ in addition to all under-represented groups in skilled occupations in B.C.’s technology sector.

Learning Outcomes:

We are inviting executives, who want to learn about the positive impact diversity and inclusion practices can have on their tech organization, to participate in our Executive D&I Training. You will have the opportunity to learn about the success other leaders have seen, while identifying your own personal barriers and the areas of growth that are possible for your organization.

1. Articulate the competitive advantage of developing and maintaining a diverse and inclusive culture

2. Understand diversity and inclusion at a systematic level

3. Appreciate C-Suite’s strategic role, influence and decision-making power to substantially impact

diversity and inclusion within their organization.

4. Explain societal and organizational barriers for women, Indigenous individuals, people living

with disabilities, and other underrepresented groups such as immigrants and members of the

LGBTQIAS+ community.

5. Through self-assessment, identify underlying beliefs, areas of privilege and personal bias.

6. Articulate a compelling diversity and inclusion vision for your organization.

7. Understand what other tech companies are doing for D&I and learn from other leaders in the

sector who are already taking the necessary actions and seeing success.

8. Identify key strategies and tactics to open dialogue, reduce and overcome barriers, shift

perspectives and promote diversity and inclusion.

9. Identify one or more strategic actions you can take after the program to build a more diverse

and inclusive organization.

10. A commitment to take action through understanding your own assumptions and limitations or

allocating the proper resources to make a change and move forward.
