Program overview

To get the best out of diverse teams, leaders need to be inclusive and create the right culture and team environment to achieve success.

Investment in traditional diversity training hasn’t created the meaningful change organisations hoped to see. Diversity training can certainly raise awareness, but when it comes to authentic behavioural and cultural change – we need to rewrite the script. As a global collective, we need to lay the right foundations for true inclusion for all – which will lead to engagement, performance, and success.

In this engaging virtual program “The Inclusive Leadership Collective”, Global Inclusion Architect and Coach Clare O’Connor offers simple, practical, and accessible foundations for Inclusive Leadership to be built on. The program is themed on the performing arts, as this is where Clare has always come alive, on stage, being creative. The USP of this program is simple; it is Unique, Supportive and Practical. Participants can move into the future with the confidence that they are part of a community of extraordinary people looking to create meaningful change. Put simply, Inclusion elevates us all!

The Inclusive Leadership Collective aims to support members to create conditions for optimism, shared purpose and belonging and we invite you to be part of that community.

Who is it for?

People who wish to discover how to turn good intentions into impact and create authentically inclusive teams and environments for all to succeed.
