growing leaders overview


Why does this workshop work, why is it important?

Being an open LGBTQIA+ leader in your organisation is not always easy. Whilst legislation (Equalities Act 2010) has advanced, it doesn’t automatically mean organisational culture has evolved or discrimination doesn’t take place on a regular basis. Bias, direct or indirect, deeply affects people and their trust levels (staff retention and organisational performance suffer too).

Being confident in your own identity is the first step in building a strong leadership brand, it helps advance your career, as well as act as an ideal role model for others. It’s essential for personal growth.

I really loved the open style of this workshop, I felt at ease straightaway
