Inclusion Works

Feb 5, 2019

How many times have you encountered a company with a set a values that didn’t match their actions? We see it all the time, don’t we? “Culture” has become synonymous with “Values,” so we tend to think changing values will change the culture. News flash: it won’t.

On today’s episode of Inclusion Works, we sat down with Sonja Gittens Ottley head of diversity and inclusion at Asana. From the beginning, Asana’s leadership has been laser focused on building a culture that is inclusive. They approach it the same way they approach the building of their products; in a really intentional way.

It’s more than just team outings or free lunch at the office… It’s about ensuring that you’re prioritizing the creators of your product: your employees. Because when people feel comfortable in their workplace, they contribute more to your business.

Culture is not a set of cute, clever statements you can easily rattle off or spray paint on your walls. It’s about behavior shift.
