D&I Keynote & Workshop

‘Shame cannot survive being spoken. It cannot tolerate having words wrapped around it. What it craves is secrecy, silence and judgement. If you stay quiet you stay in a lot of self-judgement.’ – Brené Brown

Diversity & Inclusion are themes that are receiving more & more attention in business and society today – that’s fantastic. However, they are not abstract HR concepts reflected only in top-down policies and quotas. Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace is only achieved when every communicator sees these concepts as words of action.

Let your organisation join in this energetic, entertaining and personal talk about the universal power of coming out, human connection and the power of listening. “Coming out” can apply to everyone and take many forms.

This keynote can be linked to an additional D&I workshop.

Learn to celebrate differences.

“We find comfort among those who agree with us and growth among those who don’t,” politician Frank Clark famously said – and he’s absolutely right. It’s often easier to agree with someone than to bridge our differences. Learn to look at the concept of ‘otherness’ differently and to use it as a strength instead of an obstacle.

The power of coming out.

You don’t have to be a part of the LGBTQI+ community to enjoy the benefits of coming out. What would it be like to broaden the concept of coming out and make more room in the workplace for the illuminating power of radical openness?

Diversity & inclusion are active verbs.

Receive concrete tools to bring D&I to life in your daily communication. Integrating Diversity and Inclusion in your organizational DNA starts with the way people communicate on a daily basis.
