Why do we need inclusive leadership?

We continue to face challenging and uncertain times so there has never been a greater need for good leadership across our businesses and economy. We now have 5 generations integrated within our workforce:

  • Traditionalists—born before 1946
  • Baby Boomers—born between 1946 and 1964
  • Generation X—born between 1965 and 1976
  • Generation Y, or Millennials—born between 1977 and 1997
  • Generation Z—born after 1997

This creates significant opportunities but at the same time challenges which need to be overcome.

At our first breakfast of 2019 we welcome back Jane Gotts co-founder and Director of GenAnalytics Ltd, a data insights consultancy focused on diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Jane will look at how leaders can manage these complex changes and more importantly how they can embrace inclusive leadership to drive forward their businesses.

Diversity is expanding as individuals are working longer than ever before and the days of a fixed retirement date are becoming less common.

Jane has a wealth of experience in business and economic consultancy, growing commercial revenue streams, strategic business planning and international business development, and we look forward to hearing about the opportunities diversity in the workplace can bring.

Prior to setting up GenAnalytics Ltd Jane was Director of International Business Development at Glasgow Caledonian University with responsibility for driving the university’s international business development strategy in key overseas markets including the USA, South Africa and Brazil. Before that she spent 10 years at the Scottish Council for Development and Industry, where she had responsibility for developing and delivering the organisation’s international and commercial strategy.

It is the first Communications Breakfast of our 2019 programme so book early as it promises to be a busy return to networking.
