Inclusive Leadership

18 June 2020

Phoenix Sisters partnered with the Austrade to hold a panel session on how the employees can promote and display inclusive leadership practices across the remote workplaces. Inclusive leadership refers to the leadership capabilities required to foster diversity and inclusion. During these unprecedented times, prioritising inclusion is especially important to enable us to display leadership practices that support our staff and bring out the best of all our work colleagues. The panel discussion discussed inclusive leadership practices and how we can incorporate them in the remote workplace environments at the Austrade.

Phoenix Sisters Introduction

In November 2019, we held our first open networking event, where we had candid conversations with inspirational leaders. Our panellists not only inspired, moved and captivated the audience; but are living examples of diverse leadership making an impact.

 

Key takeaways:

  • Being yourself is a strength. Know your 'why' and practice how to harness and empower yourself to bring out the best in you

  • Diversity is essential for the levels of creativity required in our future workplaces; use it to your advantage!

  • Acknowledge it takes work to build an inclusive environment, but it’s worth it!

Thank you to our event sponsor NTT, the excellent panellists and everyone who participated. Please find more information on our event slides here.
