This International Women’s Day the theme is to #breakthebias so that we may live and work in a more gender equal society. We need to stop feeding the narrative that gender equality will only happen when women do things differently – we don’t need to fix women – we need to change the cultures and environments we’re all part of and it needs to work for all women and underrepresented identities. Project leadership is key to this, although we all do have a role to play no matter our seniority.
Topics covered included:
– What is Inclusive Project Leadership & why does it matter;
– Why its increasingly important to implement amidst the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex & Ambiguous) environment our projects are taking place in;
– The challenges of Inclusive Project Leadership and how we overcome them;
– The need to take an intersectional approach in tackling gender and other inequalities.
In this webinar, we explored how we can #breakthebias through baking in inclusive project leadership rather than treating ‘ diversity & inclusion’ as an optional add-on, and why this can no longer wait in the 2020s.
