Inclusion Drives Innovation (IDI) is a ticketed professional development program led by a professional facilitator with a practical, tactical approach to identifying and scaling up DEI best practices.
This program is a direct response to KSA members' requests for expanded programming on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in order to help them continue to prioritize and get smarter about the strategies they use. It is an expansion of KSA’s DEI work that began in 2018 and, in 2019 included a year-long learning journey for 17 Kendall leaders led by Civic Designers.
IDI participants will deepen their network, learn tools to measure their organization’s DEI practices, and share thoughtful, scalable ideas for creating a more inclusive workplace.
The program will include five 90-minute sessions, tentatively scheduled as follows:
This program is geared toward people managers, as well as HR, Talent, CSR leaders involved in DEI programming and policy at the company level. Participants will be expected to fully engage in conversations focused on their greatest pain points and community successes, both personally and within their organization.
Individual and group tickets for IDI will be made available in July.
Please complete this short form and we will respond within 48 hours.
