Develop diverse and inclusive leadership

View resources

Ensure that the executive and senior level of your organisation is diverse, representative and inclusive. A committed, strong board should reflect the complexity of the communities, clients and customers it aims to serve. A dynamic, diverse and strong board will attract recruit and retain the best talent.

How do I do it?

  • Make your board diverse and inclusive
  • Do a skills audit of your current board to see where the gaps are
  • Make the senior management team more diverse
  • Motivate and educate your leadership team
  • Train your leaders and managers to handle culture change
  • Bring diversity and inclusion to the agenda of every board meeting so that it becomes part of the DNA and strategy of the organisation
  • Think outside your comfort zone, find different networks, talk to your audiences, approach local organisations and professional associations, and advertise for board members in unfamiliar places
