With this amount of inspiration, it’s sometimes possible to feel a little overwhelmed. Never fear, our focus is on helping you reach actionable steps, things you can apply immediately, to move toward more productive, more inclusive teams.


But perhaps you feel that no matter how deep your passion or how sound your point, you might not be heard once you direct your newfound inspirationn back toward your teams?

Many of our speakers have faced that, so you’re sure to pick up some tips from them.

Just to be absolutely certain that you come away with greater influence than when you arrive, one of our sessions is advice on how you can improve both confidence and competence in powerful communication.

We know your time is incredibly precious

You don’t have a half-week to dedicate to your own learning and development. The executives we work with are generally pretty time poor. They come to the Diversity Collective to gain a high-intensity, skills-boosting ideas fest. What they describe as the nice surprise is the networking that happens.

This event is just one day in your calendar. But there is great power in the networks you will build on this one day.

Your work colleagues don’t always get it. That’s understandable to a degree, they often have conflicting KPIs and pressing deadlines. The connections you make at The Diversity Collective are your peers. People Managers and Inclusion specialists and advocates, these are people you can bounce ideas off for years to come.

I’ve been involved with over a dozen large-scale Women’s Leadership events in the past two years alone. They’re powerful – inspiring individuals to stretch with greater grit and determination.

With The Diversity Collective,
we’re broadening that conversation

My personal belief is that the best gains come from adequately resourcing and inspiring individuals to choose their way. The Diversity Collective is focused on how do we do that at a corporate level.

What’s working right now, to encourage the individuals who don’t look and sound like the CEO, to trust their voices within those businesses, to see themselves as viable contenders for future leadership? How do we encourage innovation when business processes and attitudes scream ‘risk adverse’?

The greatest way to influence is to understand what’s important to your stakeholders. Hear how these business leaders achieve that. How they embrace individuality to drive engagement and what productivity gains they’re seeing as a result.

So many of you have signed up for webinars in the past, hoping to tap in to inspiration and learning. But how often do you get to attend the webinar, come d-day? Your inbox is demanding, office emergencies, reporting, special projects all get in the way.

This one day will take you away from the noise and chaos of delivering your job, to refocus on how to be most effective in your job. Hear what’s working, reflect on what’s working for you and get advice on how to close the gaps.

Join us at the Primus Hotel,

Save yourself first

My long-time coach and friend often says to me “Save yourself first”. He’s right.

By gathering your focus, whether Inclusion is your whole role or a passion project, this is an opportunity for you to get laser-like. The more engaged and focused you are, the more effective you’re going to be at crafting more inclusive, productive teams.

Take the time to re-energize, in a room of peers in a gorgeous setting at The Primus on Pitt Street Sydney.

Define your priorities, get realistic and set strategies. Build your skills of influence to boost not just their engagement in your message, but yours too.

The Primus is a boutique hotel so capacity is limited. We like to keep it that way, so you have greatest opportunity to interact, to ask questions.
