We would like to present, with a practical case, how to innovate diversity and inclusion mindset and practices to promote well-being and free self-expression for people within the organisation. We know from experience that many sounstainable initiatives inside organisations remain unimplemented. That’s why we used a structured innovation methodology, calledthe FORTH ( that combines business thinking with design thinking and creates the conditions for the implementation of innovative solutions and we adapted it to the context in order to be effective and connected to the organization. We will describe how we experimented the hybrid mode, combining the advantages of online and presence and enabling people to use digital tools during face-to-face meetings. The areas of diversity on which we have focused are 4: • Gender diversity • Ageism, understood in both senses, i.e. discrimination not only on the basis of old age but also on the basis of young age • Sexual orientation • Disability TAKEAWAYS: Understand how to formulate a clear assignment to work on SDG’s; How to obtain Stakeholders engagement; How to compose an effective team (extended team and core team); How to open your perspective and the ability to look up; How to discover to stakeholders frictions, the problem as felt by those who live it; How to use creative methods in an Hybrid way; How to structure solutions through mini-business cases and the assessment of their attractiveness and feasibility
