DEI Must Die? Inside the Work Culture Evolution with Jiten Patel

In the ever-evolving landscape of work culture, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) have emerged as crucial pillars for success. While many companies embrace DEI voluntarily, not all jurisdictions legally mandate these policies. At the core of any organisation lie its people, the driving force propelling its triumphs. It is imperative for business owners and employers to foster an environment where every member can unleash their full potential and contribute at their optimum.

Join us in this episode of Brown Business, where Jiten Patel, an Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion strategist and practitioner, delves into the profound impact of “unconscious bias” on the private and public sectors. Discover how policies, processes, and practices, when aligned with DEI principles, evolve into the guiding norms for fostering a truly inclusive workplace.

In a thought-provoking discussion, Patel addresses pivotal questions: Is there such a thing as too much diversity? And how do we navigate the challenges when diversity falls short? Gain valuable insights into creating workplaces where diversity thrives, and inclusion becomes second nature.

Tune in for a deep dive into the world of DEI and its transformative influence on business success.
