Inclusive leadership

In association with Women in Banking & Finance (WiBF) this leadership session explored the notions of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Katrin Homer, Director at Value Partnership, and Nathan Ott, CEO at The GC Index®, worked with participants on the actions that each and every one of us can take to be a more inclusive leader. They provided the forum with a tool and framework that helps leaders to be truly inclusive leaders, allowing them to pay attention to and value the different contributions people make in business.

They presented the five proclivities of The GC Index® and enabled participants to think about which preferences their companies would foster and which of them they might be lacking.

The session culminated in showing the forum the aggregate data of their own GC Index profiles (which they were asked to respond to before the session) and asking participants to explore in groups questions such as:

  • What are this group’s natural strengths and weaknesses?
  • What is this group likely to pay least attention to?
  • What would a new joiner’s experience be of this group?

Katrin and Nathan thoroughly enjoyed this thought-provoking event and were grateful to the active participation in the room and the high amount of positive feedback afterwards.

Special thanks to WiBF for inviting us, to Mizuho Bank for hosting us and to Nathan for being a truly collaborative partner!
