Leaders at every level within an organisation can significantly influence the employee experience and shape the organisation’s culture. Therefore, fostering inclusive behaviours and a culture of engaged leadership can provide a substantial competitive advantage for schools.


Key Themes We’ll Talk About:

  • Exploring Inclusive Leadership Traits: Delve into the essential characteristics of inclusive leaders, understanding how they identify their own blind spots and promote transformative changes in habits, systems, and processes within educational settings.
  • Enhancing Self-Awareness and Systemic Understanding: Gain valuable insights into how school leaders can recognise personal and systemic barriers to genuine inclusion and take proactive steps to instigate meaningful changes.
  • Fostering Psychological Safety and Team Cohesion: Explore effective strategies for cultivating an environment where school staff feels heard and valued, thereby enhancing overall team dynamics, effectiveness and outcomes.
  • Interactive Q&A Session: Seize the opportunity to glean insights from experts in the field through an engaging question and answer session.


Whether you’re currently in a leadership role, aspiring to be a leader, or simply passionate about creating an environment where everyone can thrive, this event is for you!
