Leadership by Design: Women
At a time when companies are being challenged to increase diversity at all levels and the rise of human-centred design principles is being applied across a range of business disciplines, find out where you stand and what more you need to do.
Academy Xi is organising 'Leadership by Design: Women', where a diverse panel of leaders in business, experience and product design will share stories about their current projects, their emergence as leaders in the field, and memorable design case studies. With a particular focus on women in leadership, the panelists will reflect on their own experience of how they nurtured their career in the notoriously difficult digital ecosystem.
This event will inspire as well as educate. Young people will find inspiration in the stories of success, and everyone will get some practical advice on how to create inclusion (arguably the first step to achieving diversity) in the workplace or upcoming projects.
The event will explore:
Intersectionality and its role in today's leadership landscape
How unconscious bias affects everyone
The unique traits of women and men in leadership
How collaborative leadership shapes organisations for success
How to build an inclusive culture beyond demographics.
