WU Executive Academy and the Competence Center for Sustainability Transformation and Responsibility (STaR) present WU Executive Insights: an evening event with Learning & Organization Behavior expert Josefine van Zanten.
Grow your network and connect with the current Global Executive MBA class and hear from an expert on Learning & Organization Behavior about do’s and don’ts in a global business environment.
Josefine van Zanten, Former Global Head of Learning & Organization Behavior (LafargeHolcim) Executive in Residence at IMD Business School will talk about
"Diversity and inclusion in a global business environment – from setting the agenda to actual implementation – the Do’s and Don’ts"
Diversity and Inclusion are on the agenda of most Fortune 500 organizations, yet we still debate with the same issues as 20 years ago. Less than 5% of CEO positions of this group are held by women. Employees who feel included largely outperform those who don't, yet Inclusive behavior is rarely mentioned as key characteristics of successful leaders.
Why is this a continued challenge? What are some of the proven and tested approaches that have truly made a difference?
What are approaches that lead to resisting the D&I rollout? In this session, we will address what the real hurdles are, how they appear and what can be done by managers to address these effectively.
We will work in groups, actively participate and discuss how to successfully embrace the D&I journey.
We will take pictures and film video during the event. These will be used in our online and offline communication activities by our partners and us.
