What can you do to advance diversity

Posted by | September 25, 2015 | Mosaic Blog

When the topic of diversity comes up, white men often feel labeled “the bad guys.” We can be so worried about saying the wrong thing that sometimes we default to saying nothing instead. But that is a mistake. Success today, whether in business or in our communities, requires cultural dexterity – the ability to work effectively with people who are different from ourselves. To build that skill we must understand the lens through which we view the world. For white men, that means acknowledging that we have a race and a gender. While we are not a monolithic group, those dimensions of diversity are important aspects of our identity and they do influence our experiences at work. It also means recognizing that we can contribute to advancing diversity in our organizations.

These companies have management systems that guarantee the empowerment of the main business units, including middle managers, allowing them to implement diversity at all levels and in many different ways. At the same time, diversity management should be part of the incentive and recognition mechanisms of the main directors, and not limited simply to human resources.

Posted by | September 21, 2015 | Mosaic Blog

Talent scarcity is still a problem, but engagement, empowerment, and environment are now the real issues companies face.

Do today’s “talent management” programs, as defined, work? Have all the companies who purchased and implemented talent management software truly transformed themselves? Have we really built the “talent-centric” organizations we talked about over the last decade?

There’s been a lot said over the last 2-3 years about the need for businesses to achieve a better balance of gender equality throughout their workforce’s, including in senior executive and Board level roles. Certain countries, such as Norway, have gone as far as passing legislation that requires businesses to achieve a certain ratio in the Boardroom. Other countries have adopted a voluntary (but required) approach and that is beginning to extend deeper into the executive ranks. But, several years into this agenda, have we reached equality?

We can’t innovate without being diverse and inclusive,” explained Denise Young Smith, Apple’s Worldwide Human Resources president, when the company announced it was to invest $50 million in not-for-profit organisations that promote the integration of women, minorities and older people into the technology sector. The news came out the same week Apple unveiled its smart watch, and is just one of many such initiatives some Silicon Valley companies are undertaking to increase diversity, particularly in terms of hiring more women.
