Challenges and Objectives
The workshop was required to provide an opportunity for a shared analysis of the organisation’s current position on its EDI journey. An independent facilitator was required to provide challenge and effectively engage with the Board.
An interactive, high-level facilitated discussion on self-awareness and lived experiences enabled the generation of a number of practical ways in which diversity and inclusion best practice and inclusive leadership can be demonstrated even more clearly by the Board.
The session gave Board Members an opportunity to share their first-hand lived experience which resulted in them learning more about each other and having a greater appreciation of the diversity of thought and experience they brought to the Board. As a result of the session the Board committed to acquiring an EDI accreditation to measure their progress and success in embedding an inclusive workplace.
“I thoroughly enjoyed this thought provoking session which provided the perfect opportunity for us as a Board to have courageous conversation.”
Malcolm Aiston, Managing Director
