The Inclusive Agency Training Series
Now is the Time to Cultivate a More Inclusive Independent Agency
It's vital for today's businesses to proactively embrace diversity and inclusion across their business operations to cultivate a more competitive advantage in the marketplace. When your agency staff and business practices are intentionally diverse, inclusive, and equitable, your business will thrive with new ideas, opportunities, and clients. But, where you do you start? That's where the Big "I" comes in.
The Big “I” Diversity Council is pleased to release this four-part training series exclusively for YOU – independent agency leaders!
Building Awareness of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
You’ve heard these terms being used but what does, diversity, equity and inclusion mean for you and your agency? During this session we will explore these key terms and reference how they relate to your marketplace, workforce, and workplace.
The Business Case for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Just like with any business practice, identifying the WHY behind diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) must be clearly known. During this session we will explore key data emphasizing the business case and further connect the dots on how to drive DEI in business decisions related to your marketplace, workforce and workplace.
Understanding Blindspots and Microaggressions
We all have blindspots or “biases” that can negatively impact our journey in building a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture across our agencies. During this session we will explore the science behind biases and learn how to combat them, when necessary, along with other discounting behaviors.
The Inclusive Agency: Developing an Inclusive Workplace
Let’s GO! During this session we will assess where we stand individually and where our agency team stands collectively in modeling an inclusive culture. We will then explore various ways we can move the needle forward as we strategically determine DEI initiatives we can implement in our agencies.
