Ep 46 - Being an inclusive leader

Uncategorized May 02, 2021

 

In this episode of the Influence and Impact for Female Leaders podcast, I speak to Haseena Farid, co-founder of The Women of Colour Global Network - a membership network connecting professional women of colour, supporting them with career progression and advancement.

We discuss:

  • How The Women of Colour Global Network was started, what they do and how you can be part of it
  • The double disadvantage for women of colour and the impact of that
  • How leaders can create a safe space and open dialogue around diversity and inclusion
  • Ways we can educate ourselves on inclusion and become change-makers in our organisations

I hope this week’s podcast provides you with some more insight on inclusion in the workplace and practical ways you can be a more inclusive leader.

I’m grateful to Haseena for being so open with her experiences and advice.  The Network is a supportive and inclusive space for all women and their future vision is to provide mentoring, run events, and work with organisations to improve their culture, policies and practices.
