One of the most powerful leadership lessons is to appreciate the value of bringing people into the team who think and look different to us.
On Thursday, 30 June, the Diversity Council Australia (DCA) and Xplore for Success co-hosted a conversation on inclusive leadership
Last Friday, 30 June, I was honoured to share the stage with 2016 Australian of the Year Lieutenant General (retired) David Morrison AO.
I continue to hear heart-breaking stories of bullying, harassment, discrimination, and covert or hurtful behaviour from leaders in organisations who not only know better but, ironically, win awards!
It is wonderful to see the increased level of conversation and action taking place on gender equality across the country – an issue that is now well and truly a part of the national agenda.
International Women’s Day 2016 may seem like a distant memory, but at Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) the gender conversation continues amongst its 1,900 employees Australia-wide.
If I consider a workplace today in Australia, it is likely to have an engagement score of about 60%.
Urgent action is needed to accelerate gender parity.
This was the verdict at the Diversity Council Australia and Xplore for Success Annual Diversity Debate held in November in Sydney, voted by a record crowd of over 300 CEOs, HR directors and managers.
