8:05 AM Creating a Sustainable, Global-Minded Leadership Mentality to Promote Diversity and Inclusion
In 2017, corporate scandals with brands such as Uber and Wells Fargo have set the tone for many organizations to re-think the role of their leadership in promoting a consistent, healthy corporate culture. In times when many organizations recognize the need to adapt to a more flexible, global, and diverse workforce, and when social issues such as racial conflict and gender bias transpire into the workplace, creating a sustainable culture of inclusive and ethical leadership is not only something to consider, but it is urgently needed. Leaders of today must share consistent values in managing and motivating a workforce in an unpredictable environment.
AFLAC has consistently ranked amongst the Top Companies for diversity and inclusion. Inclusion is a mind-set that goes beyond diversity quotas. Inclusive minded leaders are able to get the best out of all colleagues, and agile enough to deal with day-to-day business challenges. Inclusion creates environments of trust by breaking down the silos that diversity quotas simply put up. This session led by the CHRO at AFLAC will explore approaches to developing a global-minded leadership and its successful outcomes.
•Developing a new blueprint for inclusive leadership: moving beyond compliance with diversity quotas by placing HR in the centre of growth strategy and innovation
•Leveraging inclusion to enable innovative and agile problem-solving across a global workforce
•Reinventing ways of working to respect individual needs
•Promoting a shared culture of trust, through accountable, socially-responsible, and ethical leader behavior
