The Keys to Building Diverse and Inclusive Teams

Study after study has shown that an environment fueled by diverse, inclusive teams is key to enhancing innovation, inspiring creative problem solving, and fostering greater agility in adapting to the changing needs of today’s business environment. Here at GoodData, we’re proud to promote diversity and inclusion — not only because it’s good for our bottom line, but because it’s the right thing to do.

As GoodData’s Chief People Officer, I’ve had the pleasure of being deeply involved in our initiative to foster diversity in our workforce. We built this initiative around five key success drivers:

Truly Listen

Create an environment where people feel comfortable sharing candid feedback through engagement surveys, focus groups, and other opportunities.

Lock in Leadership Engagement and Ownership

Recognize that when programs have the backing of your leaders, they get more traction across all areas of the company.

Enlist and Empower Champions

Recognize and amplify the passion of people who believe in the values of the company, its culture, and its products.

Build a Shared Vision

Once you have your champions in place, pick one or two key areas of impact and agree on a vision with clear success metrics that allow you to monitor your progress.

Unleash the Power of Community

Allow your initiatives to be driven by community, which offers two advantages:

  • Generating energy and momentum for the initiative
  • Building a vibrant culture where people connect on things they’re truly passionate about
