Part-entrepreneur, part-visionary, Trevor is regularly invited to participate in think-tanks and conferences, speaking to over 10,000 people each year, and is often profiled in the media. He is the author of two groundbreaking books. Diversity at Work: The Business Case for Equity continues to be a resource for diversity leaders 17 years since its publication. His newest work, The Human Equity Advantage, Beyond Diversity to Talent Optimization recognizes the growing sense of ‘diversity fatigue’ amongst organizations and puts forth a bold new management model, human equity, that promotes talent differentiation from a positive psychology perspective which helps to significantly improve employee engagement.

​Beyond Diversity to Human Equity – A case study

Many businesses talk about creating diversity within their organizations. As valuable as this can be, it’s worth taking a step further. Trevor Wilson, well-known author, Global Diversity and Human Equity Strategist, will show you how to take that step and move beyond diversity to human equity. Don’t confuse equity with equality. They are far from synonymous. Equality is about ignoring differences and treating people the same. Equity is about acknowledging differences and turning them into a competitive advantage. You’ll discover the paradigm shift to human equity is well worth the journey. Learn how a major division of one of the world’s best known companies moved beyond diversity to human equity and achieved global recognition for the best business results and the highest employee engagement scores in the entire organization.

​Breaking the Cycle of Prejudice

All human beings stereotype information in order to help categorize things. But when stereotypes involve negative attitudes, prejudice takes over. Trevor Wilson, well known author, Global Diversity and Human Equity Strategist, offers you a front-row seat to witness how the cycle of prejudice and discrimination can play out in our everyday lives. You will examine the relationship between stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination from a business perspective and see the impact they can have on individual and organizational effectiveness. Trevor’s messages are simple yet powerful. Acknowledge that the cycle exists; understand what we do to perpetuate the cycle; then learn how and where to disrupt the mechanics of discrimination.

​Equality vs Equity – A Management Choice

Look at any current management book and you’ll read about the essential role manager’s play in successful companies. How employees are treated by their immediate managers has more impact on their engagement and retention than any progressive policy or Human Resources initiative. What can managers do to become more effective? While there are no simple solutions, Trevor Wilson, well-known author, Global Diversity and Human Equity Strategist, offers the closest advice we have to a “silver bullet”. “Don’t treat your employees equally.” The result will be a fairer and more inclusive work environment that supports employee satisfaction and engagement.

Trevor takes you on a journey though leadership styles showing how movement from the age of inequality, where people were forced to “fit in” and differences were discouraged, to the age of equality, where leaders ignored differences to avoid the historical discrimination that dominated the previous era; to the age of equity, were leaders acknowledge differences and see them as advantages that can be leveraged to improve organizational effectiveness.

​Maximizing Neurons per Salary Dollar

You’ve heard a lot about making the most of your investment in Human Capital. With most organizations spending upwards of 36% of revenue on human resources, it becomes a business imperative to be able to “maximize every neuron per salary dollar”. The challenge is that yesterday’s approaches to leveraging talent don’t take into account the realities of today’s workforce. How do you drive innovation and productivity when your human capital is as diverse as your marketplace? How do you identify and motivate high potential talent when they represent different races, cultures, ages, gender, education, economic class and thinking styles?

Trevor Wilson, well known author, Global Diversity and Human Equity Strategist, will show you how to maximize your investment in human capital through innovative diversity strategies that identify and capitalize on the unique talents of your workforce. Only when you create an equitable and inclusive work environment can you reap full value for your salary dollars.

​Seven Competencies of an Equitable Leader

What distinguishes outstanding leadership in today’s organizations? Increasingly, it is a leader’s ability to effectively manage people to deliver outstanding performance. How do you achieve this capability? While there is no simple answer, Trevor Wilson , well known author, Global Diversity and Human Equity Strategist,offers the closest thing we have to a “silver bullet”. His hypothesis: great leaders understand the diversity of talent in their workplace; they engage staff by treating people differently rather than follow the traditional wisdom of treating everyone the same; they capitalize on differences and turn them into competitive advantage. How do you develop equitable leaders? Trevor will introduce you to the “Equitable Leadership Toolbox” where you’ll find instruments to assess the seven core competencies managers need to be successful. Try a self-assessment to see how your behaviour compares with norms for equitable leadership and gain insights on what you can do to become a more effective leader.
