IICF UK WEBINAR SERIES BEING HEARD: The Many Voices of Diversity

27th October 2020

About the Series

The COVID-19 crisis has impacted us all in different ways.  As we look to the future and begin to explore how we can build back in a more sustainable and inclusive manner,  we must also look for new, innovative ways to serve our customers and communities.

By harnessing social diversity as well as diverse perspectives, experiences and skills, companies can cultivate innovative, inclusive cultures where all voices are heard. In a Forbes Insights survey of 321 global executives, 85% agree a diverse and inclusive workforce is crucial to encouraging different perspectives and ideas that drive innovation.

IICF is hosting a series of interactive webinars to share ideas and best practices on themes of diversity, inclusion and leadership and how companies and charities can come together to translate these ideas into action and build back better together.  The series will begin with a presentation on how employees can be heard in the new virtual workplace and will then explore how insurers can connect with charities to amplify the voices of others and to work collaboratively to create a more diverse and inclusive industry.

Staying true to IICF’s mission, our events benefit local social mobility charities helping change the lives of people in our community.

This webinar series will give participants an opportunity to:

  • Cultivate more diverse and inclusive teams
  • Learn how you can be a more effective, resilient leader
  • Connect with speakers and participants via live chat
  • Take practical ideas back to your organisation
  • Be a catalyst for change to people in our community

Don’t miss this opportunity to be inspired, exchange ideas and learn how you can be a catalyst for change.

The Programme

22 Oct 10am Amplify your voice in a virtual world

Nick Winston, Leadership Consultant and Director of DaVinci’s Workshop.

How can you amplify your voice and help others be heard? Explore practical tips on how to amplify your message, how to reach a wider audience and stand out from the crowd. Our fantastic speakers will explore the stories of people and organisations that have succeeded and we will also hear from IICF’s grant recipient St Giles Trust on how they overcome these challenges.

6 Nov 11am How to be the best version of yourself inside & out

Susanne Jacobs, Founder of The Seven and Rebecca Lily, Founder of Passage to Poise.

We shine from the inside to out. When our confidence, self-worth and sense of purpose are clear and nurtured we can truly be, and give the best of ourselves. So much of what gets in our way is our own limitations, whether that is within our career, our role at work or in relation to other aspects of our lives. And, in a world where uncertainty and change circles around us, our capacity to push forward, to show the best of ourselves and to take action to grow and develop can be even more difficult.

Susanne’s talk will provide an insight into the science behind our performance together with research-based tools that are practical and easy to apply to your day to day work and life. Tools that with practice boost our inner-life so we can be the best version of ourselves, able to write our own story as we would wish it play out.

Rebecca will offer insight and practical advice on how looking good, even on virtual calls, builds confidence and our sense of well-being.
