How to Build a Culture to Unleash the Power of Diversity on your Organization
A Talk by Kevin Withane (Purpose-led Senior In-House Lawyer and Ethics and Compliance Executive)
About this Talk
Trust is at an all-time low. Business is being asked to step up and deliver more than just returns to shareholders. We will look at building a culture in your organization that creates diversity and uses equity to generate inclusion through which your people feel empowered to engage in your mission.
It starts at the top – and without the top leading any initiative, success will not materialize. From there everyone else is a co-creator, in showing integrity to build trust and psychological safety. We will see the benefits if embracing equity and learn what inclusion looks like.
