As well as using strategies to make sure people feel heard internally, there are other things you can do to amplify diverse innovators within the workplace. Amplification is also about nurturing skills and allowing people to thrive.

For example, you could offer:

  • Webinars and events where diverse innovators lead on their input and impact on the work or project
  • Listening exercises to encourage individuals to communicate how they think the organisation can best support Black and ethnic minority professionals
  • Guidance designed to help professionals develop an effective anti-racism strategy
  • Practical advice on establishing an employee resource group (ERG) for Black and ethnic minority employees

What needs to happen for this to take place? What else can be done to foster a better working environment for diverse innovators?
