Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace: Transformational and Authentic Leadership.

Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace: Transformational and Authentic Leadership.

Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is imperative for a sustainable, competitive and innovative company and society at large. Diversity also goes beyond the outward perception of a company – it includes how the internal structures work and signal the value systems of an organization’s management or leadership team.

This series is designed by Diversify to centre Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace. We look forward to seeing you!

Transformational and Authentic Leadership.

Workplaces across the world have expressed a new or renewed commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion  and Belonging (DEIB), along with increasing awareness about the importance of DEI from a moral and business standpoint. Many companies are now creating and hiring new roles within DEI, reevaluating their DEI strategies and vision, rebranding their websites and communication channels, and are more vocal about their DEIB initiatives. These are all welcomed steps towards creating an inclusive workplace where people feel safe, respected, seen, heard and empowered to sit at the table and voice their opinions.

Nonetheless, in order to create an environment with meaningful, actionable and measurable impact on the DEIB initiative, leaders need to do more, and BE more. Who should be a leader? And what do we expect of them?

Join this session to learn more and engage with our brilliant panelists.

More information coming soon!
