Accelerate Your DevOps Culture of Innovation with Everyday Inclusion & Belonging (Las Vegas 2020)

Based on The Unicorn Project stories, DORA annual reports, the Accelerate book, Google studies and many significant researches conducted in the last 10 years on cognitive diversity and innovation, we know that safer and more inclusive DevOps teams perform and innovate better. Companies that have more diverse management drive 19% higher revenue due to greater innovation. Racially diverse teams outperform non-diverse ones by 35%. And 67% of job seekers look for evidence of inclusion and equity programs when considering a new company. Yet, leaders still struggle to create an inclusive environment for their teams. Too often diversity initiatives stop at diversity and fail to address teams' inclusion, belonging and equity. In order to be authentic and effective, inclusion behaviors need to be owned, modeled and lived daily by teams and their managers. Development managers, in particular, must actualize inclusion in daily interactions, conversations, decisions and must engineer a climate of openness, collaboration and safety. The objective of this presentation is to share effective and actionable practices to help DevOps teams and managers embody inclusion through everyday collaboration and team practices.
