A chart showing the accountabilities, linkages and working arrangements between key internal stakeholders involved in the D&I change process. It may be used as a checklist when formulating action plans or reviewing progress, to check that roles are clear and resources are in place, connected and aligned.
A model mapping the main stages of change involved in implementing D&I, from Getting Started, through to Integration and Sustaining Progress. The model identifies the main areas of focus and the associated activities involved at each of the four stages. It can be used to map where the business is as a whole, and/or track progress in individual parts of the organisation. This tool can also be used interactively with leaders or groups of employees to help facilitate discussions about "where are we now versus where we want to be". It can be used to set priorities and check progress on implementation in a given phase of the process.
Additionally, Brook Graham can provide, and tailor for your specific needs, a wide range of practical tools to support aspects of implementation. By way of a few examples, these include:
To help leaders and other key stakeholders review their level of D&I awareness, priorities, actions and behaviours, and develop individual and team action plans.
A practical guide to the steps that D&I champions/practitioners can take to promote D&I and help drive change.
A similar guide focusing on the practical actions leaders can take to support D&I change. This can be used in a number of ways, including: as a 'back pocket' guide for individual leaders and leadership teams, or as an engagement tool /discussion document when working with leaders on D&I. It can also be a further source of ideas when formulating D&I action plans.
Practical guides and assessment tools which help people assess the extent to which a particular team environment or part of the organisation is inclusive of all employees.
