Inclusive Leadership
How to Develop an Inclusive Mindset and Behavior for Business and Personal Success

There’s a simple contradiction in the way leaders manage their people and run their organizations that is too often overlooked; they are addicted to sameness in an age of diversity. That is fundamentally an unsustainable position to be in. Understanding and being adept at inclusive leadership will help leaders thrive in their increasingly diverse environment.

Inclusion is not just about accepting people’s differences – it’s about leveraging colleagues’ and employees’ unique experiences and backgrounds, as well as understanding your customers’ needs, to drive innovation and results.

Stephen reframes the business case for diversity and then shows how it is in all leaders interests (whomever we may be) to embrace difference. With reference to in-groups and out-groups in addition to self and role, audience members are guaranteed to have an a-ha moment in terms of why they should lead inclusively. They’ll leave this session equipped to take business goals, customer loyalty, and their career to the next level.

Intended Audience: Senior leaders and executives – especially those skeptical about the results of diversity and inclusion.

Creating Inclusive Cultures
A diverse workforce doesn’t mean your organization is a safe and inclusive place to work. It doesn’t mean that your employees are able to perform to their full potential. In order to leverage the true power of a diverse workforce, your organizational culture must be inclusive. Learn how to make this a reality.

By attending this session, you will learn how to:

Practical insights and ‘nudges’ needed to create and maintain an inclusive workplace culture

Learn how to engage your organization in this culture, from top to bottom

See how organizations are doing this successfully

PROGRAM FORMAT: From a 45-75 minute keynote with Q & A to a half-day workshop

PERFECT AUDIENCE: Chief Diversity Officers and Human Resource department leaders.

Embedding Inclusion into Strategy
Without inclusion, diversity can fail. Stephen offers a powerful, humorous, and compelling argument for inclusion, based on empirical evidence from around the world combined with the latest Harvard research. It is a thought-provoking, challenging and informative opportunity to refresh the believers and convert the currently unconvinced that inclusion enhances.

In order to be successful and make a real impact, inclusion needs to be central to organizational strategy. It must be fully supported by the CEO and have buy-in from key stakeholders and be central to how your organization operates day to day. Learn how to make this a reality and why inclusion will benefit your organization as a whole.

By attending this session, you will learn how to:

Position D&I to support the core purpose and impact of the organization.

Ensure D&I is part of the organizational strategy.

Design diversity and inclusion strategies tailored to the business goals of an organization

PROGRAM FORMAT: From a 45-75 minute keynote with Q & A to a half-day workshop

PERFECT AUDIENCE: Chief Diversity Officers and Human Resource department leaders.

Inclusion 4.0
What does Inclusion of the Future Look Like
Many organizations have talented Diversity Officers and operate Diversity 101 programs; however, they may find a way to get the most out of their program they need to upgrade to inclusion 4.0. Diversity is great, but so is bringing differences together in one team, and often this second imperative is forgotten in the pursuit of the former.

The next phase of inclusion needs to address the realities of living in a digitally equipped world. Inclusion 4.0 looks at where organizations must now develop. It looks at how to embed inclusion into overall strategy and operations, as well as how to attract, recruit, retain, and upskill a diverse team that gains competitive advantage and is greater than its parts.

By attending this session, you will learn how to:

Prepare for the future of work by facing new inclusion challenges head-on

Move your organization beyond inclusion compliance, debiasing systems, and marketing messages

Learn how to embed inclusion into overall organizational strategy

PROGRAM FORMAT: From a 45-75 minute keynote with Q & A to a half-day workshop

PERFECT AUDIENCE: Chief Diversity Officers and Human Resource department leaders.
