Inclusive Leadership

** First cohort commencing Thursday 15th July 2021 – book here to secure your place. **

Inclusive Leadership is designed for leaders who want to bring out the best in their team and to challenge the organisational culture from the top down to be more diverse and inclusive.

How we define success in leadership is changing. To deliver innovation, performance and productivity in an era of rapid change and complexity, leaders must leverage diversity. However, without inclusion, the key benefits of diversity are lost.

Rather than delivering isolated initiatives that focus solely on enhancing demographic diversity, there is powerful evidence for expanding our objective toward the development of an inclusive culture that will effectively leverage diversity of thought.

If you have been charged with leading people, have been set diversity targets and KPIs linked to inclusion, then this series will help you to understand what hinders change, how to overcome barriers to embedding inclusion as a cultural mindset so you can deliver the best possible outcomes for your organisation.

Delivered by our long term program partner Serendis, who facilitates our universally acclaimed Mentoring for Success Program, these 5 interactive hands-on sessions will drill down into how to really drive cultural change and highlight the key concepts and behaviours required to build an inclusive environment within your teams & organisation. 

Serendis have developed Inclusion360, a well-received tool by organisations that seeks to create a measurable framework to progress on this critical organisational development challenge. All participants of Inclusive Leadership will complete Inclusion360 and analyse their own unique leadership style. This comprehensive feedback will allow you to delve deeper into your own specific behaviours and provide a framework on how to enhance your inclusivity within your team and organisation.

 

These sessions will cover:

From fairness to performance: how to position D&I as an organisational strategic advantage

Dispelling myths and (re)-engaging the sceptics

9 dimensions of inclusive leadership

Evidence-based and practical behaviours that shape inclusive cultures

Influencing change at an organisational level

How to deliver measurable and sustainable change in leadership habits 

Course Outline 

This program is designed for influencers who are looking to deepen their D&l knowledge and lead change within their organisation.

D&l committee members will enhance their understanding of the key drivers of inclusive leadership and how to implement a culture of inclusion beyond diversity objectives.

Senior leaders championing D&l within their organisation will develop practical capabilities and insights into how to assess and measure inclusion.

The webinar series will also provide an effective platform for participants to share and learn from each other’s experience in leading best D&l practice across the sector.

The program runs over 5 sessions:
