Inclusive leadership, what does it really mean? Over the years we have characterised leadership as being ringfenced for CEOs, trustees and people managers. But inclusive leadership goes above and beyond. For us to create inclusivity at work in the heritage sector it requires every one of us to take on responsibility and accountability for leading inclusion in the workplace.
Whether you are a people manager, staff member or volunteer, each of you can create intersectional inclusive methods of working practice; create positive change, with compassion and empathy. Inclusive leaders are vital to organisations to create and proactively support the changing needs of their existing customers whilst attracting and maintaining growth of new audiences.
This webinar, with inclusion specialists Becki Morris and Sarah Simcoe, will cover the following key areas:
- The characteristics of an inclusive leader and how to cultivate your practice
- The benefits of inclusive leadership to the organisation
- Authentic changes you can make within the organisation
- Introducing “empowerment” as a workplace tool
- Realistic advice on overcoming challenges
Inclusive leaders are imperative in how sectors and organisations manage crisis and change, no more so than during the pandemic.
