Society is changing with greater and greater speed. Cultures are becoming more and more intermingled; gender and sexual identity are now far more openly fluid; the complexity of our ability to function is increasing as we live longer due to technological and medical advancement.
You need to greet the future with confidence and curiosity. You need a unique approach to diversity and share it through light and engaging — yet apposite and revealing — activities. You need to build an environment of trust, openness, curiosity and inquiry, which develops leadership capacity, enhances understanding of diversity, and creates the conditions needed to embrace complexity, uncertainty and social improvement.
Developing new ways to think about yourself and others, in the context of the future diversity of your team or organisation, is not only necessary, but it also increases your and your communities' wellbeing.
