Accelerating Difference – Masterclass

London on 27th April 2017

How to develop inclusive leadership and boost productivity?

Using outcomes from evidence-based practice in the fields of Psychology and leadership, this one day masterclass will help scope the meaning and practice of inclusive leadership. Explore strategies to enable all aspiring people to achieve their leadership potential, and so ultimately boost organisational productivity.

Who’s it for?

Male and female senior leaders, HR Directors, Equality and Diversity leads, OD and Learning and Development Directors, from public and private sector organisations, together with existing The Glass Lift Members.

Participants will explore strategies for increasing diversity and inclusion at senior level, working with accelerating gender balance in leadership as a practical example. Be informed and inspired to lead change and create diverse and inclusive senior teams. Share best practice and knowledge with other influential people and change agents who are committed to increasing equality, diversity and inclusive leadership.

Masterclass content will include:

  • Inclusive leadership – where are we now?
  • The link between inclusive leadership and organisational productivity
  • From unconscious bias to conscious inclusion – changing behaviour
  • Engaging senior leaders in the agenda
  • Developing a strategic approach to increase inclusive leadership
  • Action planning and preparation for a follow-up consultation.

Follow up two-hour consultation included:

As part of this masterclass delegates will have the opportunity to book a follow-up session of up to two hours with members of The Glass Lift team, who will support you in the development of your strategic approach. This session may be held at your office up to three months after the workshop date and can involve other members of your organisation.

Lead facilitator: Margaret Davies CPsychol AFBPsS, Occupational Psychologist & Director, The Glass Lift. Margaret is co-founder of The Glass Lift and a registered Occupational Psychologist. Margaret has extensive experience of facilitating behavioural change in a range of organisations across industry sectors. She is recognised as a thought leader, speaker and key practitioner in the drive for more gender balanced senior teams.

She had a successful first career working as a senior marketing manager for several large companies including Microsoft Ltd.


Bring a colleague from your organisation and two people can attend for the price of one. In our recent Bristol masterclass, delegates said it was really beneficial to bring a colleague, as it provided “time to focus on this area of work” and to start thinking about actions that would work for their organisation.
