Diversity and Inclusion is about empowering people
In the HR sphere of knowledge, there are lots of buzzwords floating around. Data, technology, recruitment are just a few. One of the more powerful ones, or phrases at least, is diversity and inclusion. That in of itself is a vast conglomerate of dimensions. Most focus on just a couple of those such as gender or ethnicity, but there are so many more dimensions to consider: people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, the formerly incarcerated, veterans, people who have been out of the workforce for an extended period of time and are trying to re-enter the workforce, the elderly. The list goes on.
In this episode of HR Exchange Podcast, host Mason Stevenson sits down with Philips Medical Systems Head of HR Mark Dickinson to discuss some of these dimensions and why much of the focus of the diversity and inclusion conversation should be on inclusivity.
