Masterclass: leadership for diversity

Many organisations have implemented diversity initiatives that have had little impact so far on the percentage of qualified women and underrepresented minorities holding IT leadership positions. The challenge is even greater where companies across all industries are competing for highly sought-out IT skills in what some describe as a ‘talent war’. Besides the challenge of CIO’s attracting talent with the scarce combination of tech-skills and soft skills needed to collaborate with the business—creativity, cognitive flexibility, and emotional intelligence, they also face the challenge of appealing to workers who admire companies committed to having diverse IT workforces and leadership. So, how do we crack the code achieving more diversity in digital technology?

Programme details
This 2-day masterclass is for seasoned digital leaders who wish to develop and implement the strategic narrative for diversity within their organisations.
