Research demonstrates a strong correlation between diversity and inclusion and organizational effectiveness. Inclusive workforces enjoy higher productivity, and lower attrition. This shaped Idaho National Laboratory’s (INL) commitment to building an empowered workforce that is inclusive and diverse, where everyone functions at their best. This presentation will share INL’s efforts in: 1). Embedding inclusivity into all aspects of workplace culture and organizational operations, 2). Engaging the entire workforce in a shared commitment to mitigate bias and foster psychological safety, 3). Aligning top-down directives and bottom-up efforts into a unified, strategic vision, 4). Collaborating on diversity and inclusion efforts with other organizations, 5). Assessing the impact of the aforementioned on hiring an inclusively diverse workforce at all levels of the organization and 6). Building inclusively diverse talent pipelines internally and externally.
