The Measurable Value of Inclusion with 15Five’s Cara Pelletier
Play • 49 min

Creating an inclusive culture involves much more than trite phrases and modernizing policies.

Cara Pelletier, Sr. Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging at 15Five, shares how building an inclusive culture takes multiple building blocks. Some of those blocks are cultivating traits like humility, curiosity, and vulnerability. Others are very tactical, like using intentional language, incorporating neurodiversity, and embracing healthy conflict.

Cara also explains how inclusive companies experience more than just safe working environments; they also see measurable returns on the investment they make in their people.

We finish our conversation with a teaser for a DEIB course Cara created, which is part of 15Five's Transform offering. Part of that course, which deals with neurodiversity is detailed in this blog post.
