The Breakthrough D&I Innovation Lab is approved for 14 HRCI Credits.

This two day lab orients around highly-interactive components that create the conditions for promising new ways of thinking and working to unfold.  Breakthrough enables the design of promising new practices that transcend today’s “best practices” .  The experience also develops individual proficiency in innovation and increases commitment to D&I.   Although resulting prototypes focus on a wide-range of different issues and opportunities, participants will:

  • Reframe D&I in progressive business relevant ways
  • Refresh commitment, courage and proficiency in leveraging D&I for innovation
  • Design new ways of working that can create greater value with D&I
  • Map a system-wide plan yielding wide-spread sustainable results. 

Businesses need innovation in D&I
How many times have we heard that progress in D&I is stagnant, that D&I change takes a long time, that D&I is not relevant to the business, or that D&I efforts are stuck and not moving the needle? If we want different outcomes, we need to approach D&I differently. That requires innovation to create greater value with D&I.

Making innovation work for D&I
Rebekah Steele’s Breakthrough D&I Innovation Lab creates opportunity for progressive leaders to co-create promising new practices with potential to transform D&I strategies into business success stories.  Each customized lab is different, but the 2-day version orients around highly-interactive components that create the conditions for promising new ways of thinking and working to unfold.
