Embracing Diversity in Agile: Celebrating Introversion, Extraversion, and Ambiversion
Do you feel like you work in a diverse workplace in terms of minority representation, but it still feels like “the same old story” when it comes to decision making and problem solving? It's the same voices and power dynamics that influence the way you work and what you produce?
If this is your experience, let's explore the “diversity” chasm between a company's so called “reputational” diversity and the true inclusivity, the game changing ability that fuels innovation and business agility. We will follow the journey of an Agile Leader to cross the diversity chasm and examine challenges that often get in the way of realizing the full potential of a truly diverse and inclusive workforce.
Although this talk focuses on agile leadership, much of the content is applicable to all agile practitioners. Participants will learn the role they can play in creating a truly inclusive team environment regardless of their role. After all, everyone is a leader and has the power to influence how they work.
