Transforming the Global Workplace

What does it mean to be a consciously global organization?

Plenty of companies are global. But when it comes to Diversity and Inclusion (D&I), they struggle to be truly global. They may launch a D&I initiative only to find that what feels like a fit in one country, feels foreign and forced elsewhere. They may be unsure of how to talk about D&I across the enterprise and so avoid the conversation altogether or stick with “safe” topics. Others try D&I activities that they hope will work for everyone but wonder why they don’t bring true transformation.  

We can help. 

We believe that meaningful inclusion is possible across vastly different cultures, languages, and worldviews. But it doesn’t happen organically. It happens with intention, planning, and design – it happens when you become Consciously Global.

Consciously Global means:

  • Imagining a Global Diversity and Inclusion vision big enough to embrace everyone in your organization – across cultures, across regions, and across countries

  • Creating D&I strategies that are locally tailored yet globally cohesive

  • Learning from the vast diversity present across your global company

  • Drawing on the differences that naturally silo and divide to create unexpected synergies and dynamic teams

Consciously Global companies drive innovation and achieve transformation when they value and cultivate the contributions of a globalized workforce, in a globalized workplace, for a globalized marketplace.

That’s why at The Kaleidoscope Group we do global diversity and inclusion differently.
