Policies and Practices to Promote a Diverse Workforce
SESSION: Policies and Practices to Promote a Diverse Workforce
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Fernanda Foertter, Rebecca Hartman-Baker, Hai Ah Nam, Judy Hill
Organizations compete to recruit and retain the best talent to achieve its mission focus, whether in academia, industry or federal agencies. Demographics show an increasingly diverse workforce, but often workplace policies lag behind and can be exclusionary. Not surprisingly, successful policies and practices that encourage diversity are beneficial to all employees, as they convey the organization’s recognition that people are its most valuable asset. Clear policies that are equally applied encourage diversity in the workplace. In this BOF, participants will share management strategies and experiences that have been successful at creating a diverse environment and are productive for all employees.
