While organizational change is a collective effort, it requires individual behavioral change. Institutional policies and practices need to change to support diversity and inclusion initiatives, as well as the rights of all employees withen the workforce. An individual cannot change behavior in an organization that does not allow for these changes to occur. It is absolutely crucial that this support comes from the top, senior leaders, and management personnel of the organization; they must be engaged in the process for it to be successful. Without their support and engagement, the changes will occur in small pockets only, and not throughout the whole organization.
