Meet Jana Seijts, Lecturer of Management Communication and founder of the Women’s Leadership Mentoring Program at the Richard Ivey School of Business. We asked Jana how Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) programs can be enhanced beyond what’s being offered today. Hear what she has to say about the three key pillars that are necessary to ensure meaningful change.
“When we talk about EDI, what we’re really doing is trying to help build a community of trust within an organization.”
Seijts believes organizations need to work more on addressing workplace behaviors with tools like SOCIAL SYTLE®. She said what the SOCIAL STYLE ModelTM lends to EDI training is a mindset shift where people learn to appreciate diversity through thought and behavior.
