Diversity and Inclusion

A Deloitte report revealed that 61% of all employees hide or “cover” their identities in some way. This can negatively impact employee engagement and performance because more time is spent thinking about hiding parts of themselves rather than on their work.

None of us, is as smart as all of us

The Desert Survival Challenge was a path breaking simulation run by the US Airforce during World War II. It is now a case study in many top business schools. The challenge involved groups of 20 cadets – theoretically victims of a plane-crash – being tasked to find their way to the nearest habitation some 70 miles away. More than 2000 real life simulations showed that groups where decision making was broad based, iterate the best survival strategies. Groups where only a handful of views dominated, usually made the worst decisions, often lost morale and were unable to reach their destination.

Developed in collaboration with leading academics, FocusU’s 3R’s approach provides teams with a framework on how to approach the conversations around diversity, equity and inclusion in a holistic way.

Recognise: Unconscious biases
Rethink: Current behaviors
Rebuild: A culture of inclusion and belongingness

Each of the modules here are thoughtfully customized to make a tangible difference.

    It forced me to learn and grow in spite of dealing with my busy schedule of juggling between work and a new-born back at home. You helped me understand new concepts in merely 15-30 mins ; and challenged me to think through different issues I should deal with. I should get them sorted mentally in my mind first than in real life. Thank you for helping me grow my knowledge.

    It’s not about the content or activities. Those can be replicated by others. It’s what the FocusU team does with them which makes the experience so special.

    The team had a great experience at the engagement session! Would say this is easily one of the best sessions I would have attended in a long time – the mix of fun and messaging was perfect and can easily notice the change in attitudes on the floor. Well done, pls. convey my kudos to the rest of the team as well.

    The dance session was really awesome. We learned some great and interesting dance steps with expressions. The best part is that we all were dancing virtually but still we were able to match our steps with the music. It was really engaging and we all had so much fun. Thank you so much.

    The Learning challenge was very informative and challenging. The thing which I love about this challenge is that it provides videos also that make it easy to understand the concept.
