Diversity Councils are critical in building and maintaining inclusive and equitable organizational environments. The existence of an effectively operating Council demonstrates an organization’s commitment to creating a workplace that values and respects the wide variety of differences individuals bring to their work.

The Talent Dimensions Leadership Academy for Councils prepares organizations to create or revitalize infrastructure and operationalize plans for supporting a Council that will be integral to shaping a culture of inclusion and belonging. The program content is flexible, with care taken to address internal and external organizational realities. With a solid foundation of a clear mission, focused strategy, well-crafted charter, and results-focused goals, a Council can guide the important work of ERG/BRG leaders and members and promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging enterprise-wide.

During the design process, Talent Dimensions facilitators conduct virtual meetings or interviews with decision-makers and stakeholders within the organization to clarify deliverables and ensure the experience effectively reflects the culture and focuses accurately on the desired outcomes.

Participants will explore best practices and examine possibilities based on our decades of experience in the diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging space.
