Learning Program

Inclusive Leadership

Inclusive leadership is crucial for organisational success as it brings out the best in people. It is a leadership style that, for the benefit of both the company, the individual, and the team, revolves around creating an environment where everyone feels seen, heard, respected, and treated fairly. Such an environment sets the conditions for individuals and teams to collectively perform their best work.

However, knowledge of DEI alone is not enough, and inclusive leadership can easily be perceived as something abstract. Many of us mistakenly believe that we are already very inclusive – but inclusion requires active and deliberate daily behaviour.

The “Inclusive Leadership Learning programme” is an intensive learning journey for leaders wishing to enhance their inclusivity. Participants are introduced to the core traits and competencies of an inclusive leader, to classic barriers, and actionable steps.

This program breaks down the concept from abstraction into tangibility, equipping leaders with practical tools for implementing inclusion. It accommodates busy schedules via two virtual learning sessions and a series of exercises seamlessly integrated into daily work life.

What makes ‘Inclusive Leadership’ unique?

Blended learning design for rapid impact: The program seamlessly merges the benefits of virtual learning with hands-on engagement. It includes live online classes that provide participants with essential knowledge, terminology, and practical tools for immediate application in their work. The learning journey also involves substantial asynchronous components, utilizing a variety of resources like exercises, homework assignments and knowledge sharing among participants.

Global learning community: As part of the program, all participants receive a complimentary quarterly membership to DEI Club, granting access to a wide range of learning resources and opportunities that extend far beyond the Inclusive Leadership programme itself. Including supplementary learning materials regarding all facets of DEI, exclusive events, tools, and networking opportunities.
