If You Can’t Treat People with Respect — Get Out!

Brianne Risley By Brianne Risley,
Delivery Manager at Eagle

Eagle received the great honor of being recognized as one of 2018’s Best Workplaces for Inclusion by Great Places to Work.  I am proud to work in an environment where Diversity is celebrated, but creating that culture isn’t easy. Addressing attitudes, unintentional comments, or outright intolerance takes courage and persistence.

How do you address issues of intolerance in the workplace?  How can you tell a co-worker or acquaintance that they’ve crossed the line?  What does it mean to be an inclusive environment?

After discovering racial slurs at the US Airforce Academy’s Preparatory school, Lt General Jay Silveria took what I view as one of the best, clear, inspiring stands on the “power of diversity”.  This is a masterclass on setting a clear path to encourage Diversity in a workplace.  The message is simple, clear, and inspiring. I hope you watch it.

If you can’t treat people with respect – Get Out.
