Issues stemming from lack of inclusion have made global headlines over the past year. In addition to those headlines relating to race, gender, and orientation, COVID-19 has exacerbated feelings of exclusion thanks to ongoing quarantines. Both inclusion and COVID have shed light on the distance between the ideals of corporate diversity and the stark reality, exposed the widening gap between leading and lagging industries, performing and non-performing companies and inspiring and mediocre leaders.
In the face of shifting contexts, the difference in performance will come down to leaders’ ability to adapt, innovate, and remain agile. Marrying inclusion and innovation can make a significant impact on the levers of success, allowing organizations to cater to diverse customers, markets, ideas and talent.
How to curate and implement this unique and critical capability is less well-known. And that’s what we offer in our Fellowship.
We know that lots of senior leaders find it uncomfortable to talk about diversity and inclusion. We will equip you with the metrics, skills and language necessary to navigate the complexities of this challenge and unlock the potential of an engaged, diverse workforce.
Divided into three phases, our virtual program is designed to expand your perspectives and provide you with a network of peers that will endure well beyond the end of the program.
Our faculty are leaders are reknown experts in the field of leadership. They combine theoretical knowledge with real-world insights from their extensive work with industry and government.
