In 2022, almost two years since the killing of George Floyd and Black Lives Matter protests, and a year on from the killing of Sarah Everard, every leader understands the importance of equity, diversity and inclusion.
Our media headlines are full of stories about trans rights, cancel-culture, “woke ideology” as problematic, and systemic issues of racism, misogyny and homophobia within the police.
But, regardless of how much we know there needs to be change and how much we want to drive positive change in our communities, how many of us are really confident in knowing how to prioritise this topic and be an inclusive leader in the workplace?
Leaders are expected to be doing more and there can be a lot of pressure to get it right. Join Nathan Nalla, Director of Be The Riot as we explore Be The Riot's 7 Characteristics of an Inclusive Leader with the participants sharing examples in pairs. The aim is to draw on your own experiences and the challenges you've faced to then explore solutions together. It's very interactive from start to finish. We'll wrap up with a Q&A.
We will discuss:
• How do you authentically prioritise equity, diversity and inclusion?
• How do you ensure awareness leads to action and that action leads to tangible change?
• How do you ensure diversity doesn’t just mean “more underrepresented groups in the workplace”?
