Hear from Michelman, Inc.'s William Harvey on enterprise and inclusive excellence.


Enterprise excellence and inclusive excellence are closely linked, and real-world challenges have shown that both are essential to the success of any organization. To achieve enterprise excellence, organizations must focus on improving their operations and processes while creating an inclusive environment that engages everyone. In this interactive session, the facilitator will invite participants to explore inclusive excellence at their organization. Join William Harvey in a discussion on the following topics:

• The business case for DEIA and why a business case is a bad idea
• Lessons from the United States Military
• How belt systems and CI teams can destroy inclusive practices
• Leadership is language and how language invites everyone to the party
• Three things to consider to increase the chance that everyone can engage every day
