EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO CREATE AND LEAD AN INCLUSIVE, DIVERSE TEAM
The business case for diversity and inclusion is clear – it drives innovation, profit and employer brand. But how can male white leaders help implement this change? There’s no denying it’s difficult – perhaps you feel left out of the conversation, afraid to make mistakes, and confused about the evolving language of diversity and inclusion.
In this practical guide, leading diversity specialists Felicity Hassan and Suki Sandhu OBE teach you how to create an inclusive environment for your employees and have educated conversations about diversity, navigating what can sometimes be tricky territory with humour and heart.
