Let’s face it: Technology teams today aren’t exactly known for being the most diverse or inclusive organizational units in the world.
And I don’t say that to make anybody wrong, but if you ask anyone who’s worked in the industry for any period of time, most would agree that generally speaking, teams pretty much “look” the same.
And while that might not sound like a big deal, here’s the problem: That lack of diversity and inclusion decreases team creativity and productivity, which translates into lower business revenue.
Because most people who “look” the same have a tendency to think the same, and problem solve the same, and do a lot of other things similarly, which can significantly impact product design, innovation and customer satisfaction.
Conversely, when you have a more diverse and inclusive culture inside that team, you’re problem solving and innovating with individuals that have a varied set of skills, beliefs and experience levels.
It’s no longer just the same old same old when it comes to product innovation or problem solving or just team dynamics in general, because now you have a team culture that prioritizes the inclusion of a whole host of experiences, point of views and creative abilities that can absolutely become a legitimate competitive advantage for your business.
And it’s during this session where I show participants how diversity and inclusion is a key ingredient for building and leading high performing teams, as well as some do’s and don’ts for operationalizing those learnings and making them work inside their organization.
