Recruiting , Retaining and Progressing Diverse Leadership Talent Inclusively with Cultural Intelligence (CQ) - A Leadership Masterclass

A two day Masterclass programme targeted at Senior Leaders across HR, Workforce Development and Organisational Development who have the power to introduce and lead real changes across their organisation.

Does leadership talent from diverse communities in your organisation ‘come and grow’?  Or do they ‘come and go’ or not even get there at all? 

Despite a plethora of initiatives, diverse representation at senior leadership level remains unacceptably low in both the public and private sector.

Join Above Difference CEO Jennifer Izekor on this unique Masterclass as she leads you through a fresh approach to recruitment, retaining and progression that is making a real difference to our clients.

Our unique Masterclass draws on the robust and academically validated theories if Cultural Intelligence (CQ) but explored within the context of Value Driven Inclusive Leadership and Culture Change Management.

We believe these elements are fundamental to achieving the culture change that will create fully inclusive workplaces where talent from all backgrounds really can ‘Come, Stay and Grow’.

There is no requirement for participants to have attended any previous Above Difference Masterclass programmes; the content references our acclaimed one-day Public Masterclass ‘Leading Inclusively with Cultural Intelligence’
