To support the rapid shift to remote work due to COVID-19, we launched the #RemoteDEI campaign to share bite-sized strategies for ensuring DEI in virtual spaces. Follow our posts on Twitter and LinkedIn!
Establish weekly check-ins with your team.
Connection is key.
Be inclusive of all voices by grabbing a virtual coffee with various co-workers, taking care to avoid distance bias.
Design virtual meetings to be inclusive, using breakout rooms to ensure equitable voice and space to process in small groups.
Reach out to colleagues for impromptu calls as needed.
Start meetings with a fun way to check-in and connect with colleagues.
Don’t let your newly remote team fall into the common trap of over-emphasizing quantity over quality.
Ask remote employees to create their own “user manuals,” share them around, and reference them when you interact.
