Headspring Virtual LAB

Diverse Leadership Beyond Conversations

Interactive virtual event

Diverse Leadership Beyond Conversations


Diversity, in terms of gender and ethnicity, is on the agenda of most companies, at least in the West. But the reality is that many companies are failing to meet their commitments. Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 companies still show a woeful lack of diversity at C-Suite level, and across many of the senior leadership teams. What’s holding them back?


This online interactive event, hosted by Headspring, will consider whether the psychology of discomfort and fear can explain the diversity roadblock. What can be learned from other parts of the world where discussions of race and ethnicity, for example, are held out in the open. Does diversity mean different things in different world cultures, particularly in organisations operating globally? Is talk ever followed by action?


The discussion, as part of this 90-minute event, will be led by Ragil Ratnam, Expert on Human-Centered Leadership in a Sustainable Business Ecosystem, and Silvia Pavoni, founder and editor of the Sustainable Views newsletter, Financial Times Group. The event will then be opened up to the audience for an online discussion of the issues, and reflections on possible solutions to the question of diverse leadership in action.
