But just as we need to train our managers in OH&S we need to train them to be inclusive – inclusive leadership doesn’t always come naturally.
This workshop will empower your managers to become inclusive leaders by teaching them the impact of identity and providing them with the ability to recognise barriers. Most importantly we will teach them the tools to be true allies and advocates in your workplace.
Many organisations are now implementing diversity and inclusion strategies, but without the support and drive of your people leaders – success is unlikely.
This workshop allows your leaders and employees to reflect on what creates inclusion and how their behaviours and actions may be unintentionally excluding people.
We create safe, supportive spaces to have the difficult conversations. The workshop is designed to empower participants to be a key part of the change you want to see.
Participants will be encouraged to consider the impact identity has on our working lives and the career opportunities we have access to.
They will be encouraged to create psychologically safety for their employees by being authentic themselves.
In Module 2 they will learn about unconscious and conscious biases and how we can mitigate the impact of them by changing systems and processes.
Module 3 focusses on creating active bystanders and allies. We leave participants empowered and confident to become key drivers of your diversity and inclusion strategy.
This workshop is for leadership and executive teams of organisations that have a new or existing focus on diversity and inclusion.
It is also for members of diversity and inclusion advisory committees, working groups or HR teams who are tasked with creating diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Some organisations choose to take their entire workforce through this training recognising that everyone can be an inclusive leader regardless of whether you have official leadership role or not.
Your approach, authenticity and ability to challenge ideas in such a warm welcoming way is a real talent.
I've had the pleasure of being a part of D&I learning for almost a year now. Bree can gently introduce new concepts, thinking and ideas to support my practice and help me reflect. Bree's knowledge and approach are incredibly effective, and inspirational. If you are invited to be a part of these events they are of great value and a wonderful community.
Bree is a professional, committed and responsive practitioner. I highly recommend Bree particularly regarding inclusive leadership training and commend Bree on their exemplary knowledge of requirements under the Gender Equality Act 2020.
Bree’s delivery of what can at times be a complex topic was spot on for our team - combining theory and research with real-life examples and practical applications.The learning has had a lasting impact at Cube - we still hear “As Bree taught us…” – and have seen numerous changes implemented across our business as a result.
Bree has been integral to supporting the StarTrack leadership team in providing our business with the confidence to challenge the ways we lead to be more inclusive.
Bree's presentation style immediately puts the audience at ease in what at times can be an uncomfortable topic for some, and uses a combination of theory, real-life examples, break-out conversations and wider discussion groups to deep dive into particular topics.
Bree is an inspiration to me. Their deep understanding of the subject matter of inclusive leadership is clear.
Yes – our philosophy is to meet people where they are at. There is no value in getting people defensive – when we are defensive we shut ourselves off to learning. Sure some people will be resistant and may even find the content too challenging, but trust that Bree is experienced in handling these situations and will address them as they arise.
Yes – teams with greater diversity can benefit the most from inclusive leadership training. This workshop is very interactive and encourages people to share their stories and challenges. Let your team workshop how they can get the most benefits out of their diversity.
Interestingly Bree has had just as much success delivering this online as in person. We keep the sessions short (1.5 hrs) and give people a week to consider their learnings and put them into practice. This means that they are fully engaged when they return for the next session with great questions for Bree.
