Global Education Dialogues: Inclusive leadership

By invitation

It is unarguable that higher education institutions (HEIs) are facing significant and unprecedented challenges that demand more effective, agile and flexible systems and processes. In parallel, traditional and well established leadership and administrative models also need to be reframed, revised and retooled, not least in the context of the unheralded internationalisation of HEIs.

Positioning HEIs as global players means they must not only incorporate inclusive leadership practices into their strategies, but they must also find ways of implementing such practices in order to remain competitive and to foster collaboration with public and private sector partners. Building on existing talent, facilitating diversity and enhancing the cross disciplinary capacity of all its members, inclusive institutions ensure that everyone has a voice and an opportunity to influence decisions.

It is proposed that, irrespective of background, discipline and or status, inclusive institutions support and develop all staff in their professional and academic journeys, optimising their efforts through appropriate career structures in which staff are recognised and celebrated.

Event aims and objectives: 

To explore values-led leadership (collaboration & the importance of cultural understanding), equality & diversity (portability & distribution of resources & talent, recruitment strategies; women’s leadership agenda and Multi-disciplinary approach (working together to have global impact; private/public sector intersection e.g. working with multi-national companies, NGOs, World Bank) and to develop a global standard for inclusive leadership

Who can attend? 

This Global Education Dialogue is by invitation only. Participants will include policy and education leaders, academics, corporations specialised or with representation in the area of inclusive leadership. Please email Sophia.chan-combrink@britishcouncil.org.hk to register your interest.
