Redesigning Inclusion: Superpowers & Symphony
A new vision for diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.
Move beyond ‘check the box’ tactics and leave behind outdated diversity and inclusion trainings. It’s time to engage in a new approach to create and sustain inclusive leaders and organizations.
Consider this: Diversity presumes that when we put a lot of difference in the room, everything works out. Inclusion presumes that the status quo needs to make room for “others” who have not been included historically. But, bringing in more difference or making room for “others” has not worked and is not working in most organizations.
At Linkage, we conducted research to answer two critical questions:
- Why is this not working?
- How can we create an opportunity for a different approach?
This inquiry led to new insights and the creation of a new story called Inclusion Redesigned: Superpowers & Symphony.
Presented in partnership with architect and futurist Oshoke Abalu, Superpowers & Symphony is an invitation to belong, where we recognize and cultivate each individual’s uniqueness as “Superpowers,” thereby unlocking Symphony, our greatest resource to achieve true inclusion in the workplace.
This solution can enhance your existing diversity, equity and inclusion programming or serve as a framework for a new diversity and inclusion strategy at your organization.
Despite spending $8 billion on diversity and inclusion initiatives in the US each year,* only 44% of employees agree that their executive team prioritizes inclusion and 8% believe that their organization is effective at it.**
Redesigning Inclusion: Superpowers & Symphony is backed by the latest research on inclusion in the workplace and our work with hundreds of leading organizations. Linkage’s Superpowers & Symphony Solution combines individual and organizational assessments and inclusion training for leaders and the broader workforce, along with engaging, immersive keynote sessions to introduce this new approach.
