I've proposed a new Inclusion Strategy
“I’m learning to step outside of my individual box in which I’m very comfortable. Taking extra steps to engage and consult on the new Inclusion Strategy I’ve proposed in my organisation, despite it meaning some difficult initial conversations, it has benefited the work enormously.”
– Abby Crawford, Equality Manager at the London Fire Brigade
Collective leadership is taking risks with support
“I’ve learnt that Collective Leadership requires you to step in and off the cliff, and when you do, you will be caught.”
– Tessa Jennett, Founder of Lemonade, a charity supporting young people’s mental wellbeing.
I am already working differently and leading with more purpose.
“This journey alongside other amazing change-makers has taught me about courage, vulnerability, accountability and leadership. I’m already working differently and leading with more purpose.”
– Lamese Waterfield, Digital Manager
I am bringing in what might be considered ‘difficult’
“I built confidence in showing up in a more integrated way, and in bringing in what might be considered ‘difficult’ – to see this as, though uncomfortable, opening up the possibility for a different way of connecting, and co-creating a culture that I feel I can be part of.”
– Elizabeth Stopford, Film-maker at White Rabbit Films.
