Feedback form is now closed.
This talk will share the story of how Red Hat utilized an open collaborative approach to promote inclusion within our global teams. We identified 4 key themes for improving team dynamics; including other voices, diversity makes us smarter, embracing passionate dialogue to elevate performance and finally, avoiding unconscious bias to enhance meritocracy. Through an email campaign and online discussion forum, we engaged our the manager community in an open dialogue to share best practices for inclusive teams. Over a series of 4 months, we offered strategies on improving team dynamics and sought open feedback as managers tested these techniques within their teams. We asked managers to share their personal stories; from the challenges they faced within their teams to their successes or failures at implementing strategies to improve inclusion.

In this session, and in the spirit of open source, we’ll share these stories, tips for inclusion, and what we learned from this experience with you. We are now rolling out this learning on inclusive teams to all associates so they can support each other in building a diverse, inclusive meritocracy at Red Hat.
