Event Description


In a world where we can feel continual pressure to "do the right thing", how can we balance both external and our internal expectations to do better? In this overview session, you will gain an overview of a 3-part learning series that explores the why behind building an inclusive workplace culture and how you can show up in a more inclusive way by understanding psychological safety, bias, and allyship. Whether for yourself, your organization, or the profession, we can all build our capabilities when it comes to being more inclusive. These sessions will give you space to practise new skills and identify which tools will best support your inclusive leadership journey, with practical examples too.
