CorporateDNA lives a fundamental belief that Inclusion and Diversity is an organization’s leading differentiator. Our clients really value the ‘humanity and honesty’ we bring to taking I&D from awareness-building and bias training to a real place of bold culture change and performance amplification.
CorporateDNA’s Inclusion and Diversity programs are committed to building capacity in leaders to engage with intersectional thinking and inclusive conversations, addressing unconscious biases, identifying gaps in alignment, unlearning for transformative learning, and working through growing pains, as leaders align with inclusion and diversity goals. By building on these capacities, your leaders will be proficient in establishing psychological safety, constructive and authentic dialogue, and encourage visibility across all members of the leadership team.
CorporateDNA offers a distinctive process of addressing I&D needs through Twin Tracks of unbiasing the organization (fix lens) while building an Inclusive organization (builds lens). The Fix Track focuses on addressing bias, overhauling organizational fixed wiring, developing active listening, and scaling an inclusive, psychologically safe culture of feedback.
While most consulting firms focus on ‘fixing’ organizational culture, CorporateDNA goes beyond resolving immediate needs and blind spots. By integrating the “Build Track” to the I&D program, we focus on constructing organizational culture and infrastructure for inclusion and diversity that is made to last, on top of creating strategy for the here-and-now. The “Build Track” is aimed at driving and sustaining performance, impact, and growth through your leaders’ I&D readiness. In addition, CorporateDNA navigates difficult conversations and facilitates self-reflection in leadership teams through the Unconscious Bias Triangle, which addresses different crucial aspects to individual and professional identities, through the lens of Self, Organization, and Theatre (i.e. Function and Region).
CorporateDNA’s Inclusion & Diversity program has proven successful through strong shifts in performance, indicated by greater risk-taking and innovative ideas, increase in speed of execution, and greater team engagement. More than 70% of candidates have expressed overall reform in organizational culture e.g., real debate and less false harmony, and stripping out fear of failure, judgement, and rejection in favor of authenticity and confidence. CorporateDNA has also been rated one of the best providers to deliver a structured, I&D experience virtually with the same impact and ROI (face to face, live online, moderated online, or as self-directed learning.)
CorporateDNA is invested in building inclusive leaders who are able to thrive in complexity (of identities, functions and lived experiences) while unifying their teams with purpose. This ensures that I&D in leadership is not the ‘brand’ of an individual leader, but a commitment and accord that drives the team towards equity, accountability, and honouring others for their inherent value and potential.
