Session Title: “Pause. I See You” Leading in Humanising

Session Description: Today, we are living in the midst of a pandemic, something none of us in our lifetime thought possible or would experience. If there is one thing we need to understand better, it is the power of our collective humanity and how we can harness this to propel us forward as one. And this is where all of us can play our role, as individuals to lead ourselves, lead others and lead in the workplace or in the communities we serve as applicable. And it all starts with understanding and seeing from a different lens all that we have in common, rather than the differences. In this webinar, speakers share how to change the workplace to make it more inclusive.
