Scenario

Imagine that Lynette follows up with you shortly after reading your views on leadership and collaboration. Her email says the following:

Thanks for sending me your thoughts last week on the diversity issue at the clinic. Your next step is to select professionals who can help you in this project and prepare an introduction of the project for a first meeting with them.
I want you to prepare a presentation to serve as a brief (but packed) introduction for your first meeting with a group of 4–5 members that will constitute the committee tasked with addressing the diversity issue. I will review your presentation (where you identify the characteristics that you are looking for in group members) to help recruit them for you. The presentation should use 6–8 slides with detailed speaker's notes so I can understand your approach. There's not a lot of time or space, so keep things pretty high level. Do the following:
Briefly outline the project goals as you see them, and highlight a couple of the initial priorities to be addressed by the group and why they are important.
Explain the composition of the team and why you chose them. Note that you will not know the exact individuals, but assume we will get you the people with the qualities and characteristics that you outline in the presentation. Consider the following:They will need to be a group of professionals that you believe can help you define the problem and ultimately make recommendations on how to address it.
Each member needs to be either trained in, be sensitive to, or have experience with the concept of workplace diversity.
Give some thought to having some members from outside the organization.
Provide member profiles: diversity, qualifications, experience, internal versus external, et cetera.
Explain your role and describe how the group will work together and achieve effective interprofessional collaboration.Describe how the group will communicate. How and when will they meet?
How will ideas be shared and decisions be made?
What are roles, group function, and structure?
Describe the basic characteristics of a diverse workplace.
Provide a convincing argument regarding the benefits of a diverse workforce using support from current research.

Create a 6–8 slide presentation, using the PowerPoint Template [PPTX], in response to the content defined in the above scenario. Review the Professional Presentation Guidelines [PPTX] for design guidelines and hints. In addition, the PowerPoint section of the Tools and Resources includes PowerPoint tutorials. In your presentation:

  • Express your main points, arguments, and conclusions coherently. Use correct grammar and mechanics.
  • Support your claims, arguments, and conclusions with credible evidence from 2–3 current scholarly or professional sources.
  • Apply current APA formatting to all in-text citations and references. Include a references slide at the end of the presentation.
  • Proofread your writing.

You may use the Week 6 Assignment Example [PPTX] to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like.

Presentation Requirements

  • Length: 6–8 slides (not including the title slide and references slide).
  • Notes: Create detailed speaker's notes that describe items on each slide so that the viewer can accurately interpret the deeper meanings and intentions that would have been conveyed orally.
  • Visuals: Use visuals that are easily read and interpreted. Use colors, fonts and formatting, and other design principles that make the slides easy to understand and generally add to the aesthetic of the presentation.

Increasing Diversity and Inclusion at Work This week, please share your thoughts about increasing diversity and inclusion at work. Here

are some ideas to get you started:

 What actions can you take as a leader to foster diversity in an organization? What

actions have you noticed at your current work setting to address diversity and

inclusion?

 Discuss why diversity and inclusion is important for organizational success.

 What outside resource (image, video, credible or scholarly article, research study, web

resource) best reflects your experience or interest related to improving diversity and

inclusion? Share the link within your post. Why did you pick this item to share?

 What about this week's content did you find to be of most interest to your professional

development and/or academic journey?

There are several ways to foster diversity in an organization. Assist in the creation of an inclusive atmosphere in all areas. Ensuring that every voice is heard and that all employees feel safe and secure to share their opinions guarantees that employees feel comfortable doing so in the future (Guillaume et al., 2017). Addressing bias issues immediately and honestly ensures that the leader remains on top of this issue. Providing a safe working environment for everyone is essential to support employees and reports quickly and transparently. To attain more varied individuals, writing the job advertising more carefully is critical as this is the main instrument for screening and looking for fresh prospects. The language used in the job advertisement makes a difference to attract a more varied, diverse candidate pool. The establishment of an inclusion committee comprised of individuals devoted to inclusion would be ideal for creating strategies that increase diversity (Guillaume et al., 2017). Lastly, educated managers are key to the development, progress, and maintenance of diversity in the workplace (Szőcs & Miska, 2020).

Because workforce diversity and inclusion has been identified as a significant driver of internal innovation and company growth, it is critical for organizational success (Chrobot-Mason & Aramovich, 2013). Product development and the creation of new markets benefit from variety. Groups of problem solvers with a wide range of abilities outperform groups of problem solvers with a narrow range of abilities (Chrobot-Mason & Aramovich, 2013).
