[San Francisco] – Paradigm, the world’s-leading diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) firm, is offering a self-assessment that enables leaders to measure their inclusion strengths and weaknesses, recognize their unique growth opportunities, and implement new leadership strategies with expert guidance.
While leaders are critical to DEI effort’s success in an organization, Paradigm’s data show a significant barrier to their success: 95% of leaders believe in the importance of promoting inclusion, but only 38% know what strategies they can use to do so. According to Paradigm’s co-founder and CEO Joelle Emerson, “Over the past year, we’ve had conversations nearly every day where a client tells us ‘My leaders are on board with DEI, but they need support translating that commitment to action.’”
Paradigm’s inclusive leadership self-assessment gives leaders that support by prompting them to consider how frequently they engage in specific behaviors that contribute to more inclusive, equitable outcomes. Those answers are analyzed, and leaders are given an overall inclusive leadership rating and additional ratings around Paradigm’s four pillars of inclusive leadership: Objectivity, Belonging, Voice, and Growth. Those ratings are accompanied by a recap of what leaders are doing well and specific recommendations on strategies they can use to improve in each area – guidance grounded in more than a decade of DEI consulting expertise informed by work with thousands of people managers across industries.
The Inclusive Leadership Self-Assessment can be done on its own, or accompanied by Paradigm training – after a Paradigm’s DEI training, there is a 45 percentage-point increase in people’s understanding of specific strategies they can use to foster inclusion.
