The relationship between psychological safety and inclusive organisations has been studied from a research perspective with findings suggesting that psychologically safe environments contribute to healthier, more productive, and inclusive teams. Psychological safety is a crucial source of value creation in organisations operating in a complex, ever-changing environment. Leaders can unleash individual and collective talent by fostering a psychologically safe climate where employees feel free to contribute ideas, share information, and report mistakes (Edmondson, 2019).
In this masterclass, we provided an introduction to the key concepts that underpin inclusion and psychological safety and demonstrate how psychological safety can contribute to more inclusive organisations through research evidence and our applied practical expertise. We also ran a workshop on ‘how to cultivate a psychologically safe work environment’ to provide all participants a platform to apply the learnings as a group, as well as ask questions to our facilitators.
