Welcome to The “Leading inclusively With Cultural Intelligence” Inclusive Leadership Programme

As the founder of Above Difference, I’m thrilled to welcome you to our community of leaders dedicated to making a real impact. With over two decades of experience in the Public Sector, including roles as a Senior Civil Servant and CEO of a Public Private Sector Partnership, I’ve witnessed firsthand the pressing challenges that come with delivering on the EDI (Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion) agenda for both workforces and communities. These challenges have not only driven me professionally but have also resonated deeply with me on a personal level.

Throughout my career, I’ve grappled with the often daunting task of effecting meaningful change, as well as the pivotal role that leadership plays in fostering cultures where equality, equity, and inclusion can flourish. It was in 2016, after becoming a certified facilitator with the Cultural Intelligence Center, that I stumbled upon what felt like the missing piece of the puzzle. Cultural Intelligence, or CQ, presented itself as a game-changer in the realm of leadership and inclusion.

Yet, as I delved deeper into the intricacies of the CQ Model, I realised that it alone wouldn’t suffice in addressing the very real challenges of inclusion, particularly as they affect global majority groups and other underrepresented, often marginalised communities. It was this realisation that sparked the creation of our “Leading Inclusively with Cultural Intelligence Programme.”

Our program is not just another addition to the existing toolkit of inclusive leadership strategies; it’s a transformational journey designed to equip leaders like you with a unique set of tools and capabilities. Our aim is clear: to empower you to revolutionize your organisations, foster genuine inclusivity, and drive positive change that resonates at every level. Join us on this transformative journey and discover how you can lead inclusively with Cultural Intelligence.

Let’s make a difference together.

Warm regards,

Jennifer Izekor
Founder, Above Difference
