Resources and tools for helping employers get the conversation on diversity and inclusion started in their organizations.

Below is a checklist from SHRM regarding Inclusivity. Please visit the SHRM site for other resources too.

Inclusivity Checklist for HR

  • Make sure company leaders understand that inclusion is about ensuring that everyone’s voice is heard, opinions are considered and value to the team is evident.
  • Train managers—and hold them accountable—to show that inclusivity is a core competency.
  • Form an inclusion council with genuine influence and power.
  • Value differences and create an environment where people can feel comfortable bringing their “full selves” to work.
  • Identify underrepresented groups’ needs, and give them the necessary support and resources.
  • Provide workers with a safe space to voice their concerns.
  • Benchmark key aspects of your organization’s culture—and understand the employee experience—before making changes to promote inclusivity.
  • Remember that daily interactions are the most telling sign of whether or not your company has an inclusive culture.
