DEI Leads to Psychologically Safe Work Cultures
The concept of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) means different things to different people. The DRIVEN Team sees DEI as a necessary component of a sustainable organization’s DNA. Two of the Six Capitals of Sustainability are Social Capital and Human Capital. Imagine Social Capital as an organization’s culture: the networks of relationships within and around the company that lend to the group's efficient and healthy functioning. Human Capital is the collective "brain" of the organization: the skills, knowledge and experience possessed by the organization’s workforce.
But here’s the thing: Your workforce can be technically diverse by definition and still not be optimally effective if there isn’t a sense of inclusion. When people don’t feel psychologically safe, they won’t be able to bring their best brains to the table. People try, but from a neuroscience standpoint, they’re not capable of doing their best work.
