What is Diversity and Inclusion? What is Diversity of Thought? What does D&I have to do with Diversity of Thought?
It's a topic that is often over looked in the OPEX world but there has never been a more appropriate time to discuss the value and meaning of diversity and inclusion (D&I) in business.
In an era where headlines often include topics such as #MeToo, racial injustice, and LGBTQ rights, matters previously confined to our personal worlds are becoming increasingly entwined with our professional lives.
With insight from OPEX Week 2020 speakers Erika Westbay (Director of Process Excellence at Best Friends Animal Society) and Ed Jervis (Change and Culture Lead at Serco) we look at the value of creating an environment that embraces Diversity and Inclusion and how Diversity of Thought is just one of the beneficial by-products of doing so.
On the path to operational excellence and in pursuit of business transformation, Design Thinking offers a way for implementers of change to apply a systematic approach to handling problems and generating solutions, while encouraging ‘out of the box thinking’ that results in the creation of the right features for the right people.

General Ann Dunwoody is the former commanding general of one of the Army’s largest commands, the U.S. Army Materiel Command. She is the first woman in U.S. military history to achieve a four-star officer rank, and U.S. Army Chief of Staff General Ray Odierno called her “quite simply the best logistician the Army has ever had.” She led many divisions at home and abroad and commanded at every level. She also supported the largest deployment and redeployment of U.S. forces since WWII.
Ann will be sharing her unique experience in leadership, transformation, supply chain, logistics and more live on stage at OPEX Week 2020 and in the run up to the event has provided an exclusive interview with the Process Excellence Network.

Today, business transformation leaders and operational excellence practitioners are provided with a unique opportunity to ‘flip-the-script’ on institutionalized ways of working and with more than a good reason for doing so. However, regardless of the explicit necessity for this change, challenges to transformation still persist; the largest of which is a lack of cohesion between the operation and direction of a businesses’ process, people, technology and data.
With insight from OPEX Week 2020 Advisory Members and operational excellence experts Leslie Behnke (HALO Branded Solutions), David Hadd (Webster Bank) and Loren Bishop (State Street), we explore how leading practitioners are taking an ‘all or nothing’ approach to holistic business transformation.
