Set up a separate work group to draw a plan. The group should contain representatives of the staff, management and groups of diversity discussion: Why the plan is being produced? What benefits will it have? How it relates to the work of the organisation? Does the group contain all essential elements? What sort of resources are at the group’s disposal?
Important to have a survey of the situation in order to draw up the actual plan. Data collection methods and sources could include:
A description of planning process, methods used, measures selected etc. The plan should be considered and discussed, edited and adopted as part of the organisation’s normal decision-making procedure.
