Summary

  • Not top-down
  • Diversity and inclusion

Not top-down

Tania worked in her previous organization fully on the ground and alongside her peers and co-workers. She did not create change from the top hoping it would trickle down, but spent time in the middle of it to really create change in the organization’s culture.

By doing this, you really invest in the people in the organization and create strong leaders.

Diversity and inclusion

In Tania’s organization, diversity and inclusion were not used and implemented with sincerity. The organization would claim to be diverse, but it would not include people different from the board: white men, and their opinions in the decision-making processes.

Culture is important and it is needed alongside diversity.

It’s not enough for organizations to be diverse, I always say that the more diverse an organization is the more dangerous and unsafe it is if intentional work isn’t done around it being an inclusive environment. (Tania Hubbard)

When Tania’s company did no longer serve her, when she felt that it was a never-ending, take-take relationship without her receiving any benefits or worthwhile promotions, she left to start her own organization that was truly aligned with her values of inclusivity.
