Hayley Barnard is a British professional speaker, consultant and high-level trainer on subjects including the business case for diversity, inclusive leadership, D&I communications and unconscious bias. She is passionate about inspiring business leaders to adopt the principle that diversity isn’t about difference, it’s about excellence.  She tackles issues surrounding unconscious bias and inclusiveness with humor, ensuring that her ideas have real value for audiences’ working lives.

Hayley combines the latest research on inclusion of diversity with first hand experience, helping a wide range of companies to build the inclusive leadership capabilities of their leaders. In the last year alone Hayley has:

  • Designed an Inclusive Leadership program for the top 600 leaders at Deutsche Telekom (delivered via WebEx in groups of 15-20)
  • Delivered a change management program for BAE Systems focusing on ‘embracing difference’ and ‘collaboration’ as a move away from traditional comms around Inclusion & Diversity,
  • Provided board level briefings and senior leadership training for clients including Aspect Capital, Legal and General Investment Management, Lloyds, Skanska, Morgan Sindall, De La Rue, T-Systems and Babcock.

One of the most innovative projects that Hayley has headed up is the LeasePlan Women’s Arctic Challenge in which she co-led a team of women on a traverse of Baffin Island, trekking and camping for 11 days at minus 40 degrees C. Hayley worked with LeasePlan to develop this unique platform to communicate the gender balance issue and challenge unconscious bias within their company and the wider car industry – the project also involved 150 schools in an education program.

When not at work or at home Hayley can usually be found swimming in the nearest stretch of open water: in August 2018 she completed the Around Manhattan Island swim race in 9 hours 30. She then successfully swam across the English Channel in October, taking 14 hours and 12 minutes to reach France. In 2019 Hayley is looking for a warmer challenge!

Future proofing leadership skills

Developing leaders to be more inclusive in their leadership and management style is essential for any organization that wants to see significant progress in diversity and inclusion (D&I). Yet many leaders have D&I fatigue – they either see it as not their problem or that it is simply concerned with positive discrimination, specifically around gender and ethnicity. They don’t have a good understanding of why inclusion is good for them and good for business or what they should do about it. This session aims to address that.

Using inspiring ‘best practice’ stories combined with the latest research, Hayley will cover:

  • How D&I can help drive innovation and business results;
  • Why mega trends in diversity of markets, talent, customers, risk and ideas require a collaborative and inclusive response.
  • How inclusion and collaboration can be a fundamental driver of one’s leadership style;
  • What does inclusive leadership look like? How to future proof your leadership.
  • What the barriers to inclusion are (such as unconscious bias) and what you as a leader can do to mitigate their impact.
  • How you can shape, take ownership of, and be a role model for your organization’s D&I strategy
