Networking Night: Enabling Diversity at Work - Inclusion & Women in Leadership
Diversity and Inclusion: Making it Real by Jean Balfour
Today’s organisations are global and diverse. Leaders and individual contributors are working in diverse teams, both within their own country and across borders and time zones. Client-facing employees are also increasingly relating to a diverse client base. Research shows that diverse teams outperform all other teams - when they are led inclusively. The ability to form and maintain inclusive relationships is today a business imperative.
Jean Balfour will present the business case for building diverse teams and developing inclusive leadership and touch upon the role unconscious bias plays at work.
Women in Leadership – Closing the Gender Gap by Margie Warrell
Untapping female potential to improve bottom line results and stronger outcomes for everyone.
It has been well established that gender diversity is not only good for women, it’s good for everyone. When more women sit at the decision making tables, better decisions are made. Yet despite the business case for gender equity, a large gender gap remains. While there is no simple solution to such a complex problem, far more can still be done to combat unconscious bias and recruit, retain, equip, embolden and support women to advance into senior leadership roles. This session will outline both the ‘inside out’ and ‘outside in’ approach to ‘closing the gap’ and provide concrete strategies organisations can execute to move from talking about diversity to creating a culture of unconscious inclusion which unlocks female potential and leverage their feminine leadership strengths to make the difference their difference makes – not just to the business bottom line, but to society.
