One feature of The Conference Board’s work I really value—and I’m hoping you do, too—is that insights on diversity and inclusion are found in so many of its outputs, including those that don’t come badged as “diversity and inclusion.” This month’s highlighted report—on reinventing the organization for the digital age—is a good example. I’m struck, for instance, by the similarity between the characteristics of an agile organization—engaged change leaders, a speak-up culture, and transparent communication at all levels —and the characteristics of an inclusive one. Developing an inclusive culture also requires the active engagement of change leaders, opportunities for people to speak up and be heard, and more open and transparent communication in multiple contexts. Other insights from the digital age report are shared below, along with upcoming events and webinars I hope will be of interest.
