Best Practices in DEI: Creating More Inclusive, Equitable Workforce Processes 1/24 Online Workshop

January 24, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Over the last couple of years, we’ve all be made aware (or powerfully reminded) of the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within our organizations and our communities. The imperative is clear: inclusion and racial equity optimizes organizational performance and societal outcomes — not only for people of color, but for everyone. But wanting to be more inclusive and actually being more inclusive are usually two very distinct conditions. The latter takes work: policy and system changes, education and discernment, intentionality and constant effort.

Wisconsin Center for Performance Excellence in partnership with the Performance Excellence Network — is pleased to host a special online workshop series: “Best Practices in DEI.” The series will be seven stand-alone half-day modules and can either be attended “ala carte” or as a complete series. The content is uniquely aligned with the Baldrige Performance Excellence Framework, exploring many facets of diversity, equity, and inclusion through the lens of this proven Framework (though your organization does not have to be officially using Baldrige to benefit from the value of this series!). The sixth module is Tuesday, January 24: “Creating More Inclusive, Equitable Workforce Processes.” 

Session 6 is January 24 from 9:00-1:00 CT and will focus on creating more inclusive, equitable workforce processes (Item 5.2 in the Baldrige Framework).  Specific areas of focus in this workshop include:

  • Understanding drivers of & assessing workforce engagement
  • Creating an inclusive organizational culture (5.2b)
  • Building DEI concepts into performance management and accountability process (5.2c1)
  • Creating a more inclusive performance and career development process (5.2c2-4)

We will also explore best practices of high performing organizations (those who have won the Baldrige National Quality Award) to better understand how they’ve integrated DEI into these processes.

If attending “ala carte,” this workshop is $200 for PEN/WCPE members ($400 for non-members).  Teams of 3-4 members $175/each; teams of 5+ are $150/each. Investment for the full series is $1000 (for members only), prorated to $550 for this and the other three modules of the series.
