Inspirational Talk By Poornima Luthra

This Inspirational talk is about: Inclusive leadership through active allyship

Dato & tidspunkt




Inclusive leadership through active allyship

While Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) have become a cornerstone of organisation’s talent management strategy, individuals in organisations are seeking ways to make sense of what D&I mean for them and the teams that they work in, and what they can do to be allies of inclusion to co-create a culture of belonging. 

In this talk, participants will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of the terms ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’, focusing on the intersectionality of diversity and the role that plays in inclusion. Through the speaker’s Active Ally of Inclusion (AAI) model, the concept of active allyship will be introduced and tangible actions will be shared through which everyone can move from being a passive ally to an active ally.  

The talk will be held virtually in English. It is free to attend for members of ITB.

Inspirational Talks

Inspiration er en stimulus, der udløser mental hjerneaktivitet, og giver dig lyst til at gøre noget kreativt eller anderledes.

Vi ved godt, at det er vigtigt konstant at holde os orienterede og dermed blive inspirerede ved at lytte, tolke og sætte nye guldkorn ind sin egen sammenhæng. Men det kan være utrolig svært at få passet det ind i en ofte travl hverdag.

Derfor har vi udviklet IT-Branchens Inspirational Talks, hvor vi vil love dig, at du vil blive inspireret af ny læring. Inspirational Talks afholdes én gang om måneden og vil altid være virtuelt og én time. Det er kun muligt for medlemmer at deltage og det er gratis. Så hold øje med vores eventkalender, og tilmeld dig og dine kollegaer.
