We still have a long way to go before our offices and boardrooms are truly representative of the diversity in society. Inclusion is not something that can wait, and leaders in organizations have an important role to play in driving meaningful change. 

This webinar presented by Smith Business Insight and Queen’s Executive Education for this special webinar features practical advice from diversity and inclusion experts Tanya van Biesen, executive director at Catalyst Canada; Stephanie Simpson, associate vice-principal (human rights, equity and inclusion) at Queen’s University; and Av Maharaj, chief administrative officer at Kraft Heinz Canada.


Participants will gain a better understanding of:

• Strategies and ideas to make a positive change

• How to better engage employees in diversity and inclusion initiatives

• Unconscious bias (including the science behind it)

• Common diversity and inclusion mistakes that organizations make.

• The power of “reverse mentoring”

• The importance of authentic leadership at this time
