July 2022 Monthly Chapter Meeting

John Halberstadt from Lithe Speed - Topic: Agility requires Diversity (diversity, equity, and inclusion)

Agility Requires Diversity (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion - DEI)

Agile approaches, irrespective of framework, foundationally rely on collaboration and communication within and beyond our agile teams.

Diversity, in the broadest sense of the term - including cultural, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, neurodiversity and beyond - is an essential, and often underappreciated, aspect of well performing teams and ways of working. Supporting diversity isn't just the right thing to do ethically or the right thing to do to support our team members, it also helps us better build and deliver solutions.

In this discussion, we will review why more diverse teams are more collaborative, engaged and effective. We also will discuss practical techniques to ensure that we can build and support highly diverse teams and combat conscious and unconscious biases in our processes and practices, whether day-to-day meetings and ceremonies to hiring and promotion.
