Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

Lead the change you want to see

The evidence is clear. Diversity and inclusion are critical for a healthy society, economy and workplace. But this can only be achieved by removing invisible barriers, changing mindsets and creating a workplace where all can belong.

We are in a moment where real change is possible. Circumstances have transformed how many of us work and live, and in the process, have broken down many existing structures. As a result, we now have the opportunity to rebuild systems and practices to create thriving, diverse workplaces.

Developed through extensive research, collaboration and personal experiences, the Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Canvas includes detailed, open questions to draw out insights and start the conversation. Use the Canvas with your team to identify ways to nurture diversity, inclusion and belonging, whether in person or online.

Companies are most successful when they embrace diversity in gender, race, perspective and personalities. Businesses that go from an all-male or all-female leadership team to an even mix of gender could see an increase in revenue of around 41%, according to a study co-authored by an MIT researcher.

Another study showed that after studying 1,700 companies, those who had a diverse team had 19% higher revenue than those who didn’t. Having a healthy mix of leaders has been proven to lead to more creative ideas, more efficient problem-solving and better financial achievements.

Introducing Women @ Work

An interactive program to lead change through diversity, inclusion and belonging.

This program is not about fixing you. It’s about fixing the system for everybody."​

What makes the Women@Work Program different?

This highly interactive, evidence-based program has been co-created by women for women.

Importantly, learnings and tools are applied in the workplace through practice and project work.

  • Discover what healthy collaboration looks like and how to collaborate to lead change.
  • Understand how diversity impacts the workplace and practice strategies to improve the workplace for everyone.

  • Practical tools for creating inclusive and diverse teams.
  • Strategies for overcoming barriers to career progression.
  • A career plan which builds on your strengths, values and interests.
  • And a network of inspired and supportive women from across your organisation.

With the duration being over four weeks you had enough time to go over the content after each session and think about it in context with your role and what changes you could apply to make a difference.”

I did find the Women@Work workshop interesting and helpful. It helped me realise the difference between men and women in terms of behaviour at work and provided the tools and techniques for me to develop and improve myself and the people around me in an inclusive workplace.

Product Manager

I liked the way it made you think about how you can support other women around you and be heard so that you can positively contribute to development and innovation within the organisation.

It made me realise that we are all innovating whether we know it or not, and that diversity contributes to that innovation process in a positive and impactful way.

Corporate Counsel

Tess was a fantastic trainer, very energetic and insightful. I really enjoyed the session.


A valuable experience where I have learnt ways to improve my confidence and visibility. I have gained insights and new perspective in my thinking from doing the course and hearing the views from the other participants.  I’m able to bring back what I learnt to my team members and help amplify the women in my workplace.

I can run my ideas through the questions provided in the course to change the way I think, and for problem-solving, able to rephrase the problem and able to think outside the box for a solution.

Senior Engineer - Software

Tess provided a very thought-provoking course, which allowed attendees to talk freely about ways forward.
