Inspiring diversity & inclusion


A blueprint for leaders

The business case for diversity is compelling. Yet there is a lot of frustration about too much talk and too little action. Why? 

Inclusive leadership is not always a skill that comes naturally. Diverse teams are harder to create and lead than homogenous teams. The ability to bring together people from different gender, cultures and generations, as well as realizing their full potential, is fundamental for every leader.

This masterclass will equip you with a toolkit to take action!

Course Overview

This interactive and thought-provoking half-day workshop, exclusively for NAWO Members*, is designed to help you build and unlock the potential of diverse teams while providing essential insights into the challenges of managing diverse teams.  

The program will provide you with information, insights and inspiration to:

  • create a culture where women are included and diversity is celebrated;
  • host forums for cross functional teams and departments to collaborate and work in alignment on diversity initiatives;
  • generate greater awareness about the benefits of gender balance and inclusive cultures;
  • design events, activations and experiences that attract more women in target market.

Along with practical strategies, you will take home the four-step method to build a gender equality strategy for your organisation that is simple, effective and sustainable.
