Many DEI programs today can do a great job of building awareness, but often they fail to engage with senior leaders in a way that recognises the context they operate in. These leaders face a wide range of pressures, complex challenges and competing demands. Moreover DEI programs need to feel like a strategic imperative with specific and achieveable goals for them to engage in it.
A great deal of DEI training is too generic, does not present a persuasive case for change and does not sufficiently address the role senior leaders need to play as equity advocates as a result.
Wherever an organisation is in its DEI journey and whatever level of exposure leaders have had to the topic, Symmetra will help them find the reasons to be both excited and motivated to create an inclusive workplace.
We do this by providing leaders with an essential education on the importance of DEI, combined with a strong business case, and developing customised roadmaps to grow their inclusive behaviours.
