Celebrating our Differences

Thursday, 06 October 2022
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm (UK time)
    • Joanne Lockwood, See Change Happen

Do we stop to consider what it is like to be us, and recognise how we can celebrate the difference in all of us?

Learn how we can become self-aware of our own behaviours and enrich our perspectives and views of others.

The fear of saying or doing the wrong thing is often cited as a major barrier to many inclusion initiatives – Joanne talk introduces the importance of both Emotional (EQ) and Cultural Intelligence (CQ) as a foundation of creating an inclusive workplace culture.

In this interactive and engaging session, Joanne Lockwood speaks about what you can do right now to step up and step in to celebrating the differences in all of us and the strength it brings.
