In the past years, we've seen the emergence of a human-centered corporate culture, one that values employee experience, builds a network of trust, and a diverse team. Even though true success in this endeavor relies on the contribution of each employee, organizations often miss the mark when it comes to recognizing that a prerequisite to achieve this lies with managers.
While leadership sets the stage for how employees feel about the company, employees end up experiencing their workplace through the lens of their direct manager.
The question is, how can business leaders support managers who are being asked to develop a human and inclusive culture?
In this Fireside Chat, Amber Cabral and Ken Roden discuss the manager ally, someone who supports diversity, inclusion, and equity in their own place of work.
You will learn:
- What manager allyship means and its impact on creating a more human and inclusive workplace
- How employees can benefit from allyship in an uncertain environment
- How organizations can build manager allyship and encourage managers to be allies
