Championing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Leadership

In the current business landscape and modern workplace, the importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in leadership has never been more resounding. As organisations strive to foster a more inclusive and equitable workplace, the role of CEOs championing DEI initiatives becomes paramount.

Effective DEI leadership enhances a company’s culture and also drives innovation, employee engagement, and overall business success. In today’s episode of The Workplace, we explore the strategies and initiatives that CEOs can implement to embed DEI into their organisation's core values and practices.

We speak with Rex Macaskill, Group CEO of POKKA, about how CEOs can embed DEI into their core values, address unconscious bias, and ensure DEI initiatives lead to tangible outcomes. Discover strategies for promoting inclusivity, driving innovation, and enhancing employee engagement in your organisation.
