We’ve all heard terms such as diversity, equity, and inclusion in the context of corporate culture. But these are far more than buzzwords – when all employees feel safe and valued in bringing their unique selves to work, they will likely be happier, more productive, and more loyal to their employer, which translates to greater success for the organization. 

How can companies move beyond treating diversity as a box that needs to be checked, and ensure that they are creating an environment where each and every employee feels comfortable? According to Shan Foster, our guest in Episode 113 of The MINDSet Game® podcast, the solution may require a resetting of corporate culture. Shan is the co-founder and CEO of Fostering Healthy Solutions, LLC, where he cultivates healthy solutions to diversity issues through education, training, and execution, as well as the author of What Hurt Didn’t Hinder and a frequent speaker before national and international corporations, conferences, and collegiate national sports programs. In this episode, Shan discusses the following:

  • Why our differences bring even more value than the things that make us alike
  • Why intentionality in various areas of a company’s process – from the hiring stage through training and beyond – is key to nurturing successful employees and achieving true diversity
  • 7 steps to resetting corporate culture, as well as examples that illustrate why these steps are so important 
  • Why it’s crucial for leaders to reconnect their heads with their hearts when approaching issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion
