How to Walk the Talk with Inclusive Innovation

As we return to work and continue to navigate COVID-19, this is the time to take hold of the “New Normal” and shape it to be inclusive at its core. How can we turn ideas and values into actions and impact? How do we measure success and create a sustainable strategy for inclusive innovation? Which perspectives need to be a part of the process to ensure progress? In this IPx session, we will explore these questions and ideate clear action plans to catalyze these efforts within our own organizations.

Innovation requires the capacity to think differently: to see more than one way to solve the same problem. And for any team to be innovative, it needs to be inclusive. Our experiences, in life and work, shape the perspectives with which we see the world. How we understand people, challenges, opportunities, and impact. These diverse perspectives are essential to challenge the status quo and create space for new ideas to flourish.

Inclusive innovation is easy to talk about and harder to do. But it is doable and absolutely essential.

A note on attendees: Inclusive innovation permeates every part of an organization—from HR to marketing, data science to design. To enrich our conversations and ensure the greatest reach, we are asking Members to each invite one additional team member from their organization. This may be someone new to Innovation Pioneers, who bring a new and needed perspective.
