UNC Leadership Survey 2016:
Diversity Competencies for Leadership Development
The modern workforce is rapidly changing, becoming more global, interconnected and diverse. The growth of a truly global labor market has accelerated the need for more inclusive work environments and more culturally competent business leaders. Many organizations have recognized the importance of diversity; these companies are actively working to create and sustain a culture of inclusion. Companies are integrating diversity and inclusion into their leadership development efforts, to better prepare business leaders for a more diverse, more inclusive future.
UNC Kenan-Flagler has partnered with Chief Learning Officer, Talent Management and Workforce magazines, to conduct a survey of HR and talent development professionals to answer the following questions:
- How are organizations redefining the competencies their leaders need to lead a more diverse, globally distributed workforce?
- What leadership competencies have been identified to create a culture of inclusion?
- How are leaders asked to support diversity and inclusion goals, and how is success measured?
