Leadership Development, Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging
"I found the Inclusive Leader program to be one of the most eye-opening, confronting and significant leadership programs I have participated in. Through highlighting the importance of always seeking to understand the complex situations and challenges people are facing, both at work and often more importantly outside of work, the program has given me the awareness and practical tools to better engage, empathise and empower my team.
The Lumina tool in particular has helped me to better understand and reflect on the strengths I bring to teams, while giving me a greater awareness of my own ‘blind spots’ to ensure I seek out individuals and teams with those assets. Through beginning to implement many of the practical suggestions from the program in day-to-day interactions with my team, I have already noticed a new dynamic developing in which my team feel more comfortable and empowered, I look forward to continuing along the journey."

I have found the programme one of the most rewarding and insightful journeys I have been on in my career.
We can not underestimate the importance of cultural mindfulness not only in the workplace but in our everyday lives.
The programme leads us on a path of self-awareness. We must all speak up against racism. Thank you Cat for leading the conversation.
