PWSHRMBest Practices ChecklistThese practices have been compiled from observing and participating in the successful implementation of hundreds of inclusivity initiatives.

Do you have a workplace inclusivity strategic plan? Do you have formal policies and procedures in place for promoting your inclusive work environment? Have you made the business case for all of your diversity initiatives? Have you done your research; internal and external customer data (See article in this issue)?Do you have a workplace inclusivity/diversity advisory or steering committee (ad-hoc employee group)? Do you conduct structured group interviews for open management positions? Do you have a formal, fully-inclusive mentoring program? PWSHRMBest Practices ChecklistAre you attempting to diversify your recruiting pool while maintaining high standards? Are you conducting diversity training for managers, supervisors, and employees? Have you completed sexual harassment prevention training for all of your employees? Do you offer more advanced courses in gender communications, problem-solving, and conflict management for diverse employees?Have you developed an in-house diversity resource center complete with books, videos, newsletter, and other educational materials (like multicultural calendars) and made all of this available to your employees? Are you acknowledging and celebrating the diversity within your employment ranks before attempting to value and manage your diversity (events, activities, etc.)?What are you and your organization doing? What is working? Share your successes and what you have learned from your failures. Seek credit for your organization or submit anonymously. I guarantee confidentiality if you desire it. PWSHRM
