Inclusive Leadership Accelerator
Diversity is the new Darwinism - only the most resistant companies will survive.
Innovation doesn’t just happen. It’s the product of creating a safe environment where employees feel that they can come to work as they are and do what they love without fear of being judged. Our world is diverse. Yet, our power structures are still fairly homogeneous.
This program will challenge you to uncover your biases. Learn how to be an inclusive leader. Learn how to embrace diversity and differences. Learn how to be truly authentic. Learn how to dismantle barriers to create a new world.
Why sign up?
Because diversity fosters talent retention and innovation:
- Research shows that teams that operate in an inclusive culture outperform their peers by a staggering 80%
Employees who believe their company supports diversity, report an 83% increase in their ability to innovate
Employees whose companies help them feel included, report a 42% increase in team collaboration
US public companies with diverse executive boards have a 95% higher return on equity than non-diverse leadership
83% of Millennials report being actively engaged when their organization fosters an inclusive work environment
Yet, traditional diversity trainings and unconscious bias fail to create an inclusive environment. The positive effects of diversity training rarely last beyond a day or two, and a number of studies suggest that it can activate bias or spark a backlash.
Diversity and inclusion can’t be learned in a day. Diversity trainings are more impactful when they are complemented by other initiatives, targeted to both awareness and skills development, and conducted over a significant period of time.
It’s not enough to tick the diversity box, the real impact only comes with genuine inclusion and belonging. That is why we have created the Inclusive Leadership Accelerator.

Who is this for?
The Inclusive Leadership Accelerator is for people who consider D&I more than a "nice to have" tick in the box. People, who understand that equity is more than a gender KPI for the C-Suite and that diversity doesn’t automatically equal inclusion.
This program is for you if:
- you are a leader, CEO, D&I expert, Talent Director or in a similar role
- you want to do more than just raise awareness - you want to change behaviors
- you aim to help your business implement more inclusive practices, you want to shift paradigms in your organization and positively influence culture
- you already implemented D&I initiatives but you are still struggling to see the impact and change mindsets at a deeper level
- some of your internal practices have been condemned by the media and you have to take remedial action fast
- your stakeholders are putting pressure on you to act but you don’t know how and you are looking for an integrated end-to-end approach for your busy leader
Based on data provided by our global alumni regarding the average number of people impacted by our leadership programs, it takes only 16,667 leaders to impact 1 million people in the world. That's 1 million people who can become better humans, take smarter decisions and make a difference. Every. Single. Day.
