Join Jennifer Izekor, Above Difference Founder and four exceptional black female leaders in the public sector in a round table webinar that will highlight some of the very real challenges that black women face in Leadership in the UK Public Sector.
Listen to personal journeys and how each women has had their own unique ‘hill to climb’ in achieving professional success.
This event promises to be a real insight into what it takes to succeed, the interesting ways in which discrimination, prejudice, racism and sexism have raised their heads and the ways in which our participants have learnt to ‘thrive not just survive’ the price(s) they have been made to pay along the way. There is always a price.
Looking to the future, we’ll debate how concepts of Inclusive Leadership and Cultural Intelligence are changing things for future generations of BAME female leaders.
Besides being leaders in their professional fields, all our panellists are active in their wider communities, through their various organisations and activities are passionate about improving the lives of others.
