In this session designed for high-level leaders, join two of Australia’s preeminent leadership experts as they share evidence from research about how leadership directly and significantly influences an organisation’s wellbeing and inclusivity. Take a tour through the evidence for organisation-wide benefits of an inclusive workplace, as well the strategies leaders can use to promote inclusive and healthy work environments.
