Event description



Building Operational Competence Means...

... quickly and sustainably gaining the ability to design, manage, improve and innovate your products, services, programs and work processes.

Operational competence makes results inevitable in a way that employee training, employee resource groups and diversity committees do not.

We condensed 12 years of great practices from more than 30 diverse organizations into 3 sets of operational competencies every organization needs to get results.

After this half-day workshop, you will:

  • Recognize operational competence, then build a case for developing it.

  • Identify work processes that create value for diverse stakeholders while achieving organizational success.

  • Design operational changes that will help you get meaningful diversity, inclusion and equity results.

Who should attend?

This workshop is appropriate for anyone who will be - or currently is - working on diversity, inclusion or equity. It has an organizational focus, so it would be especially valuable for leaders and for practitioners employed by a company, nonprofit or agency. It is standardized to span across industries, geographies, and sectors.
