Course Description

If Inclusion was easy, we would all have cracked it by now. Creating a culture of belonging takes effort. 

According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development  “Senior executives found that they viewed D&I as an area that required considerable time, energy and skill, but that the benefits outweighed the costs.”  Best selling author and D&I Project Manager, Mary McGuire believes that diversity is a fact but inclusion is a choice. For the last 20 years, Mary has been leading business and functional transformation programs in major organisations and helping them create a roadmap to a truly inclusive workplace.

The Inclusion Edge is a course for leaders to become more confident in leading out on D&I. It will give you an understanding of where to put your energy to move the needle in the right direction.

In this course you will learn:

  • What we mean by D&I
  • What are the benefits for the business and you as a leader?
  • How to become aware of the bias that exists in society and in you
  • How to leverage what you know to build bridges with others
  • Practical ways you can build a culture of belonging
  • How to use data to build an understanding of what is needed
