Webinar: CMI Women: Blueprint for Balance - An Ambitious New Approach to Inclusion
Start Date: 08 Oct 2020
Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Time: 6:30 PM
Duration: 1 hour
Disruptive global challenges and shifting workforce expectations make it more urgent than ever to get inclusion right. Organisations need the skills and perspectives of a diverse workforce to find creative solutions for our changing future. Yet many companies struggle to achieve business outcomes from inclusion.
New thinking is needed to address the gap between the promise and practice of inclusion. In this webinar, Alison Maitland and Rebekah Steele, co-authors of INdivisible, discuss what we can learn from the Covid-19 crisis and #blacklivesmatter about how to elevate inclusion in organisations. They talk about the whole-system approach set out in their new book INdivisible: Radically rethinking inclusion for sustainable business results.
In this widely acclaimed book, they provide a framework to help leaders make the changes they need to achieve visible business impact, showing how inclusiveness is indivisible from the way organisations operate and enables them to unleash diversity's "collective superpower".
