Using Human-Centered Design to Enable Engagement & Inclusivity on Project Teams
Oftentimes, when employees hear the term "diversity, equity and inclusion," they immediately think it is solely the responsibility of human resources. It's not. As project managers and members of PMI, we strive to be good shepherds of the resources in our care - including the diverse group of people on our teams. To do this, and to realize the greatest benefit for our projects, we need to ensure our teammates feel safe to bring their unique experiences and best self to their work. By incorporating human-centered design /design thinking methodologies into your leadership toolkit, you will be able to lower some structural barriers to success. Through a mix of storytelling, statistics, and practical activities, this webinar will guide you to becoming a more aware team leader so you can move beyond having a diverse team and into having a high - functioning, engaged and inclusive one.
- Distinguish between diversity and inclusion
- Articulate key benefits for inclusion on project teams
- Summarize the business case for human-centered design
