Center For Talent Innovation, Julia, Julia Taylor discussed on Coaching for Leaders


Merrily. We wanted to understand what their attitudes are denied. Because we'd studied every other group in the workplace but we hadn't looked at at straight white men who you know hold so much positional power and if we're really going to drive change. We all need to be engaged. When i found so encouraging was one we asked then majority men. You know how important is deny to you at work. So not you know. Generally as a general good but how important is diversity and inclusion to use civically at. Were we found that only ten percent of majority men sad. It's not important to me at all and forty two percent said it's very important to me so to me that gives me hope. And the efforts in statements we see coming out from a livestream male corporate leaders and the their intentions in there a weakening around race. You know my desire is to extend that to keep their attention to ensure is a sustained movement. But i have a lot of hope that it can be based on those survey results. We also found that those true believers we call them. Those who think dna is very important are highly likely to be senior and as you said david so important that they set tone so that's something that has given me hope. I did not realize that there was that kind of a base of work and so we did find that they're not as likely to To act indian either more likely to believe in it but less likely to be an actively so i think that's what we need to accomplish as a movement is to ensure that base is activated as allies. Bad there's a lot to work with their. So that's something i've changed my mind on and really excited about julia taylor. Kennedy is with the center for talent innovation. The new report is the power of belonging what it is and why it matters in today's workplace. Julia thank you so much for all your work.
