The recent NRL grand final saw American Hip Hop artist “Macklemore” raising more than the roof at ANZ stadium performing his pro same sex song “Same Love”. Macklemore’s outstanding and explosive performance highlighted the relevance of equality, inclusiveness and diversity for all people countrywide. Unfortunately, it also demonstrated how some prominent Australian’s still fail to accept and include others via their comments regarding this performance.
This may be likened to the workplace and the need for an inclusive and diverse workforce and for this to be championed by an organisation’s leaders. Without sufficient leaders to drive an inclusive and diverse organisation, the culture will not:
- support diversity,
- enable employees to thrive and progress or
- attract and retain top talent.
So what can leaders do to support equality and drive an inclusive and diverse organisation?
