If we want our organizations to truly be culturally responsive, we have to make room for diverse voices and perspectives at the leadership level. So how can women better support one another to create workplaces that fully reflect diversity across culture, race, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation and more?

With the help of our expert panellists, we will discuss the ways in which women can:

● Use their influence and power to make space for those who historically have not had a seat at “the table”
● Address personal bias in order to be a better leader and ally
● Build strategic coalitions to ensure equitable opportunities for all women

Join the Global Women’s leadership Programme at The Business School (formerly Cass) for an engaging conversation that will provide attendees with the tools to contribute to more inclusive female leadership within their organizations.
