Diverse Talent Development

For many organizations the secret to diversifying their leadership teams already exists within their own workforce

High potential diverse talent often gets stuck unrecognised within the lower levels of an organization without the opportunities and tailored support often afforded to other employees who find it easier to break through and build their careers.

We offer both cross-company and internal talent development programs which address some of the nuanced challenges which can be faced by diverse talent as they seek to progress their careers.

Cross Company Mentoring Program

Our unique cross-industry mentoring program brings together emerging diverse talent and senior business leaders from across our global network in mentoring partnerships. This program aids the career development of diverse talent and provides a platform to help individuals navigate specific business and personal challenges, actively fostering diverse talent pipelines.

It is also a great tool to improve your leadership’s understanding of issues faced by diverse talent; Mentors will benefit from being reverse-mentored by more junior individuals, from different backgrounds and industries, providing a fresh outlook on current business challenges.

Organizations represented in our cross company mentoring program has included:

Emerging Leaders’ Program

Our Emerging Leaders’ program is an intensive development program for high potential LGBT+ talent and for Ethnically Diverse talent. The program is designed to build confidence, capability and leadership skills to help emerging talent transition into more senior roles. As well as serving to inspire and inform, our program equips future leaders with the tools to proactively shape and progress their own careers.

Organizations represented in our emerging leaders’ program has included:

The RISE Program

The RISE Program is an internal talent development program tailored to your organization to support high potential diverse talent (Ethnically Diverse/LGBT+/Women) as they progress into managerial and leadership roles.

Modules within the program address some of the nuanced challenges that can be faced by diverse talent and focus on developing skills in inclusive leadership to instigate a positive chain which will further support your internal talent pipeline.

The impact of this program is enhanced with complementary training for line managers and senior leaders on how to support and sponsor diverse talent – creating a real movement for inclusive cultural transformation.
