How Valuable is Communicating Diversity & Inclusion for Organizational Success? Watch this Video Interview with Priya Bates to Know More!
Delighted to share the 17th edition of Intraskope’s Spotlight Series’ featuring Priya Bates, an internal communication, employee engagement and change management strategist who works with Fortune 500 companies to enable, engage and empower employees to manage change and deliver results.
Priya Bates, ABC, MC, SCMP and IABC Fellow runs Inner Strength Communications and is based in Canada. As a strong advocate of diversity and inclusion at the workplace she outlines why and how communicators can get stronger in this emerging domain.
In the Spotlight on Internal Communications Series, I talk to thought leaders on topics interrelated with internal communications such as culture, crisis, change, executive presence and leadership. The goal is to help unravel why they matter, what can leaders and communicators learn from experts and how we can put insights to practice.
Priya and I discussed the relevance and evolving mandate for organizations today and what it means for communicators and leaders to take stock of the business imperatives stemming from DEI.
Priya addresses the need for understanding, accountability and action so that organizations can tap the potential of the diversity within and become stronger than ever.
“This is a movement — not a moment. Some were hoping the conversation would go away but it is gaining momentum as we apply a fairness lens across the board. I’ve started to hear a change in terminology. We’re moving from talking about Diversity Equity and Inclusion to Belonging, Dignity and Justice in the workplace. These are very different words that are really powerful. I think the voices have been empowered and change is happening”, she says.
