There is no inclusion without representation. However, we need to start from the premise that our existing tools, methodologies, policies, processes are incapable of leading to meaningful representation (proportional to the internal market). The Federal Public Service Commission arrived at a similar conclusion when they found We found that employment equity groups did not remain proportionately represented throughout the recruitment process. Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. This learning session is about achieving different results.
It focuses on the necessary partnership of equity-seeking employees and their experiences, hiring managers/executives and their experiences and human resources as an enabler. It focuses on deconstructing the current representation process though showcasing its limits. It further engages equity-seeking group members in their roles as change agents and makers of their meaning.
For employees (actual or potential) it is about understanding their own cultural language, defining in their own terms their leadership journey, and understanding the organizational barriers that tend to discourage active participation. Way before the term was made popular, racialized and equity-seeking employees were already in the process of “quiet quitting”. This represents an enormous loss of human capital. These employees need to be re-engaged in a co-development dialogue to find solutions to their under-representation.
