• Are you frustrated that behaviours don’t seem to be shifting in your organisation?
• Do you feel lost when it comes to developing an inclusive culture?
• Are you ready to take inclusion seriously?
During this 45 minute conversation with journalist Melissa Jackson Sarah Fox, D&I Lead at the BBC, will share what works for her to shift behaviours and develop a culture where everyone feels included
This session is for you if you:
• Worry about numbers that show that people from under-represented groups score lower on engagement surveys, and are more likely to leave than others
• Feel frustrated that behaviours haven’t changed much after unconscious bias training
• Are at a loss about possible action as ‘inclusive culture’ feels quite intangible
• Are wondering what to do beyond unconscious bias training
• Want to hear what experts do to meaningfully influence culture
• Would love inspiration from those that have moved towards a more equal, open and respectful work environment
In this interview Sarah Fox will answer your questions on how to build inclusive foundations.
YOU WILL FIND OUT:
• What Sarah does to foster a culture of inclusion
• What she and her team did to break it down and made inclusion more tangible
• How long it took her before she started seeing changes
• How the BBC measure results
• What they did to persuade those who were sceptical
• What Sarah learned along the way so you know what NOT to do when taking action to shift behaviours
YOU WILL ALSO HAVE …
• The unique opportunity to learn from someone who has been in your shoes
• Answers to the questions you have always wanted to ask
• A safe space to ask your own questions – and of course you can be sure that we will ask the difficult questions too, so you don’t have to
