Organizational change is a continuous systemic process of transformation of an organization's perceptions, behaviors, products, services, and its identity. These changes occur through formal and informal system wide policy changes. Formal communication, formal training and staff development ensure organizations continued efforts to success, and organizational change. Informal change also occurs constantly through informal communication, and unwritten rules that govern daily practices and behaviors; when these changes occur, the organizational change can be noticed right away, by those who are a part of the organization.
When initiating organizational diversity, both formal and informal, it is imperative to remember and implement changes to meet and organize goals for diversity so that it is sustainable. The diversity initiatives should take into consideration all factors that specifically concern the organization, whether formal or informal, and monitor all those initiatives consistently to ensure that they are meeting the organization's goals for diversity and inclusion.
