Rotman brings a new approach to designing inclusive workplaces.
Creating an inclusive environment is a top priority for most organizations today. However, despite system wide attempts to improve inclusion, there has been little tangible progress and poorly designed interventions have even resulted in unintended consequences. For example, some organizations that implemented mandatory diversity training had 6% fewer black women in management positions after five years. At the individual level, backlash effects can occur if trainees resent being selected for diversity training and view training as punishment for prior insensitive behaviour.
To be successful, inclusion interventions need to be user-centric, easy to adopt and evidence-based. By understanding barriers to inclusion from a user-centric lens, we can better design policies and process that actually work.
