What is Social Intelligence?

SOCIAL INTELLIGENCETM is when an organization acknowledges, addresses and invests in the social dimensions of an organization such as gender diversity and inclusion, mental health, and intergenerational issues with the goal of increasing productivity, health/wellness, and the bottom line.

This is achieved by giving individuals in an organization the necessary tools and skills to develop themselves to create a healthy and sustainable work environment for all.

Mission

Centre for Social Intelligence (CSI) empowers individuals and organizations to achieve diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

CSI was created to raise awareness about the value proposition of diverse and inclusive cultures in the workplace and to provide a blueprint for leaders on how to take action.

Inclusive organizations understand the benefits of including underrepresented groups to help them attain greater performance, innovation and better business outcomes. Founded in 2013, CSI has worked effectively with public, private, and not-for-profit groups to empower them to create change in their organizations to create a workplace culture where everyone feels they belong.

CSI Team, which include experts in the area of diversity and inclusion, change management, diversity and inclusion auditing and research, are able to guide organizations from “where do I start?” to “how do I get there?” We work with you to identify your goals and empower you to achieve them.
