Debugging Diversity with Felicity Furey

How do you feel when you are the odd one out – comfortable or uncomfortable?

We know diversity is essential for better business outcomes, to inspire creativity and facilitate innovation. Can we simply throw a couple of different people into the mix and hope for the best? Well, not quite. We must also create an inclusive environment, however what is the right level of uncomfortable and comfortable in diversity for the best performance outcomes?

We are delighted to extend a complimentary invitation to join us to hear first hand how Coraggio can expand and future proof your business followed by an exclusive keynote speaker session with the CEO & Founder of WeAspire, Felicity Furey at Coraggio’s upcoming Advisory Board Day in Brisbane on Friday, 27 August.

Opened by Coraggio’s CEO, Richard Skarzynski, who will discuss how being a part of a Coraggio peer to peer Advisory Board provides a sustainable solution to navigate your business effectively throughout 2021 and beyond.

Followed by Felicity Furey who explores how to increase diversity and create inclusive environments by highlighting:

  • Personal leadership and courage, how to stand up and share your perspective
  • Strategies addressing what leaders can implement to directly impact diversity and inclusion
  • How to make inclusive decisions when diversity isn’t in the room.
