Details of the Event

Time: 6pm - 7.45pm
Venue: Conference Venue
Featuring: Mark Kaplan, author of The Inclusion Dividend
This session, exclusively for senior business leaders, is organised by Community Business’ as part of the Diversity & Inclusion in Asia 2014 Conference. The roundtable discussion will be led and facilitated by Mark Kaplan - internationally renowned thought leader and author of the highly acclaimed business book, The Inclusion Dividend.
In today's increasingly diverse, global, interconnected business world, diversity and inclusion is no longer just the right thing to do, it is a core leadership competency and central to the success of business. Working effectively across differences such as gender, culture, generational, race, and sexual orientation not only leads to a more productive, innovative corporate culture, but also to a better engagement with customers and clients. The Inclusion Dividend provides a framework to tap the bottom line impact that results from an inclusive culture. The authors provide straightforward advice on how to achieve the kind of meritocracy that will result in a tangible dividend and move companies ahead of the competition.
At this Roundtable senior executives will discuss:
- What are tangible ways in which diversity and inclusion drives competitive advantage?
- How are business leaders integrating D&I into their core business strategies to identify new markets, develop new products and win new customers in Asia?
- What role can business leaders personally play to harness the diversity of their teams to drive creativity and innovation – and what are the new core leadership competences required?
