Is DEI an Ethical Issue?
In this fast-changing world, there are growing concerns among employers on accommodating diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The absence of DEI has denied segments of the workforce basic rights, social justice, respect, and dignity as human beings. Employees look to their leaders for solutions when times are challenging and expect them to do what is morally right. Leaders must make ethical decisions daily to protect the psychological safety of their staff. In this presentation, we will begin to identify various links between ethics and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace.
The success of diversity, equity, and inclusion is dependent on ethical leaders and decision-makers. This presentation discusses the relationship between DEI and ethics in the changing world and workplace. Meaningful diversity and inclusion initiatives must be a foundational part of your organization’s ethics—and not just because the world is demanding action. Diversity and inclusion initiatives should be a core component of an organization’s ethical framework. This presentation highlights three approaches to embed DEI practices and structures in the workplace: liberal, radical, and transformational.
