Insight Edge: Manage and value diversity

Welcome to the March edition of Insight Edge! This month’s topic – managing and valuing diversity – is part of our ongoing focus on the IML Management Competency Framework. This month’s topic falls within the category of ‘Manage and Lead Others’.

  • First up we address exactly what a diverse workplace in Australia looks like and why diversity is important for all organisations.
  • Secondly, we discuss how to remove barriers to a diverse workplace through an organisational vision and a re-working of recruitment practices.
  • Thirdly, we address how to ensure that your workplace is accommodating of diverse employees’ needs.
  • And finally, we discuss how unconscious bias can prevent greater workplace diversity and how individual managers can challenge their own biases.

We hope you enjoy this latest edition!
