  • Building an inclusive and diverse, high-trust culture enables organizations to grow, enhance their reputation and increase their profitability, employee engagement, productivity, and innovation.

    Since diversity is all about cultural norms and values, it is vital for organizations to reflect an inclusive work environment where diverse backgrounds are respected and recognized.

    Leading organizational change to promote diversity and inclusion is presented as an inclusive process involving leaders, followers, context and purpose that converge to 'leadership moments', where a leader of change may be an enabler or a ‘bricoleur’.

    The School of Business recommends that companies nominate two staff members one male and one female to join this program in order to start walking the talk of diversity and inclusion.

    • Understand organizational metaphors and types
    • Recognize the implications of metaphors and types on organizational culture
    • Represent organization culture to stakeholders
    • Measure organizational culture and communicate these measurements to the organization
    • Appreciate and manage diversity
    • Align organizational culture with several organizational design elements such as strategy, size, policies, and procedures
    • Identify the limitations of the five change models
    • Act as a role model and coach others to align their behavior with the organization’s culture and manage culture change
    • Realize the impact of how context and values affect leadership and followership
    • Recognize gender bias implications on power dynamics and leadership in organizations
    • Handle difficult conversations within their team

    Through discussions, case studies, simulating real work-life situations, group coaching, and relationship dynamics workshop, participants can develop competitive abilities to excel at their work.

  • This program addresses the developmental needs of managers and directors of both corporates and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).

    Two participants must register from the same company, one male and one female, to practice diversity and inclusion.
