The Power of Diversity

Women in Business are delighted to change the narrative with our new diversity and inclusion programme- The Power of Diversity' facilitated by Sandra Lee of Training and Learning Solutions Ltd. 
 
Research suggests that increasing the diversity of leadership teams leads to more innovation and improved business results and performance. For many, the toughest leadership and client-delivery test is now looming: how to maintain a culture of collaboration, innovation and teamwork in an environment where economies are still reeling and work practices are being reshaped. In these uncertain times, where individuals and businesses are being challenged to adapt to current conditions, leading and guiding others inclusively is more important than ever.
 
The aim of this programme is to share how you build a diverse & inclusive culture in an increasingly globalised workplace.
 
We need a new approach. Only companies that transform continuously will remain competitive. For companies in the midst of digital transformation, the ability to adapt is the single most important skill. That starts with people. Successful transformation depends crucially on whether leaders have the right mindset and skills. The more diverse the workforce, the greater the need to be able to lead inclusively.
