Joze shares his journey of overcoming the adversity of being different by discussing empowerment through self-acceptance, facing fears through repeated exposure to discomfort and the necessity of organizations and HR professionals to develop a more nuanced understanding of the diverse challenges that an employee or prospective hire might be facing. Beyond merely labelling, D&I is a complex tango, it takes two: the empowerment of the individual and the inclusive acceptance from the other members of the organization. Session breakdown: Keynote (60 minutes) Q&A (30 minutes) Interactive Workshop* (90 minutes) *including breakout room sessions and interactive discussion to collectively formulate the obstacle/opportunity and potential solutions drawing upon the experiences/best practices of the attendees from their respective organizations.
- Increased sensitivity and empathy towards people who face challenges different to their own leading to improved communication, relationships and performance in the workplace
- A more nuanced understanding to build more effective Diversity & Inclusion workplace and school initiatives that focus equally on improving the environment while also empowering the individual to act in spite of fear and empowering individuals to face their own obstacles, fears, and insecurities and unlock their true potential
- A renewed motivation to conquer personal obstacles in order to skyrocket leadership potential and effectiveness as an HR professional
