Talking Points

The importance of Diversity, Inclusivity and Cultural Awareness

Diversity delivers results.

Did you know that a study by global consulting giant McKinsey of 957 people showed that teams, departments and projects with both gender and ethnic diversity produced increased outcomes? Unfortunately, diversity, inclusion, and cultural awareness (and appreciation) are not at the front of all group agendas with the same study showing that 2 in 3 organisations have not made meaningful progress by increasing diversity.

Can that change now? Can that change start with you?

To help you learn how to open the doors to diversity in your teams, your projects, your events and your marketing, join us for this event on 'Inclusivity and Cultural Awareness' presented by 2022 Young Australian of the Year Finalist, 2 x TEDx Speaker, UNICEF Young Ambassador Jahin Tanvir.

Young people are the leaders of today and tomorrow

The last 2 years have been difficult for many, and our understanding of leadership has changed because of that. In this talk, the audience will learn about 4-leadership archetypes based on the Visionary, Pacesetter, Coach, and Relationship Builder, and how these leadership roles can be effectively translated into the world we live in right now. Adaptive leadership is a minute-by-minute choice, and after this workshop, the audience will feel inspired about how they want to lead in their life and how to thrive as a leader in this new leadership climate of 2022.

- Derive the principles of strong leadership from personal experience
- Describe the 4 leadership archetypes and becoming an ‘adaptive leader’
- Assess your areas of strength and development across the archetypes
- Apply the 4 leadership archetypes to situations you may face in your role as a leader and how that has changed over the years
- Applying adaptive leadership into your personal/academic goals in 2022

Youth entrepreneurship and the rise of adaptive leadership

This talk will cover Jahin's experiences as a young entrepreneur and founder, and the benefits and struggles that a young person in this field has encountered.

This will be inspiring and energetic and will showcase his journey of how he uses modern-day platforms such as Tik Tok to build a company that is sustainably growing, as well as being ethical.
