Company culture is a key–but often overlooked–component of developing a sustainable diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy. While most DEI work focuses on policy change, policy alone isn’t enough to create an inclusive environment. Welcoming cultures that provide all team members a sense of belonging are intentionally designed but not a natural byproduct of inclusive policies. Organizations should continue to prioritize staff policies and compensation strategies that are equitable and accessible while also considering the design of an organizational culture that supports employee wellness and belonging.
How can organizations design intentionally inclusive cultures?
Developing DEI strategies is an attempt to right-size policies and organizational infrastructure to produce more equitable outcomes. This alone won’t change all facets of a business. With intentional effort, organizational culture can supplement DEI work to provide an inclusive workplace for all.
