The 'How to get serious about diversity and inclusion in the workplace' TED talk by Janet Stovall is a candid look at the multi-faceted topic and the many inconsistencies that can delay real change from occurring across organizations.
Stovall invites her audience to "imagine a workplace where people of all colors and races are able to climb every rung of the corporate ladder -- and where the lessons we learn about diversity at work actually transform the things we do, think and say outside the office."
The speaker and inclusion advocate outlines an easy-to-follow, three-part action plan for more diverse workplaces in her talk. She addresses the need for corporations to address real problems within their team head on and the importance of tracking real numbers and statistics in order to fill diversity gaps within organizations. Lastly, she stresses the need for organizations to face real consequences when they fall behind on diversity goals in order for real change to occur.
