The call for diverse thinking in the workplace is a hot topic for many corporations, not least to mention those in the legal profession. Voice at the Table is a diversity and inclusion consultancy, focussed on women in business, who advocate diverse thinking within companies and are holding a panel discussion on the subject this month.
The event will take place on Monday January 25 2016 at leading law firm Addleshaw Goddard, Milton Gate, 60 Chiswell Street, London, EC1Y 4AG, where guests such as Clarissa Coleman, a partner at Addleshaw Goddard, will be speaking as part of a panel of leading businesswomen. The evening will begin at 6.00PM and will end at 9.00PM.
Voice at the Table’s primary focus is to support and represent women in all stages of their career and provide them with the necessary tools to progress and deliver their unique skillset.
Founder and Managing Director of Voice at the Table, Rina G Lynch, explains how business leadership is experiencing positive changes. “The era of command and control leadership is in the past and we are now experiencing a collaborative stage. However, the future demands purposeful management and leadership, which is something that requires authenticity and a vision beyond the bottom line.”
The company’s passion for increasing both cognitive and social diversity in the workplace is echoed through its Training Academy courses. On the agenda for the January 25 event, titled “Being Authentic: What’s the Big Deal?”, will include the topic of authenticity; what it means to be authentic, why does it matter and how can women develop authentic approaches to work? The panel will also discuss how the topic fits into the early stages of a career and the risks and pressures associated.
The panel will be made up of five expert businesswomen, including:
Clarissa Coleman, partner at Addleshaw Goddard, the international law firm.
Kathryn Flett, TV star and author.
Vanessa Vallely, motivational speaker and founder of WeAreTheCity, a leading women’s network, job board and website in the UK and India.
Kaela Fenn-Smith, Head of Commercial from Land Securities, the UK’s largest commercial property company.
Amanda Gill of Deutsche Bank, a worldwide banking and financial services company.
Moderating the discussion is Greg Young, co-founder and CEO of LeaderShape Ltd a business leadership development firm.
Voice at the Table, runs workshops, presentations, coaching and mentoring focussed on three key areas; confidence, resilience and initiative.
There are typically between three and six events held each month and are run by one of Voice at the Table’s experienced team of associates, trainers and facilitators or include a panel of experts.
