Our client base is diverse with strong representation from power generation, pharmaceuticals, insurance, banking, aerospace, building materials, oil and gas and high tech. In addition, our base in London enables us to greatly expand our educator network drawing on top faculty, facilitators, practitioners, executive coaches and non-traditional educators from Europe.
Diversity and Inclusion
Does your organization’s culture support both diversity and inclusion?
According to PwC, 85% of companies with a formal Diversity & Inclusion strategy report an improved bottom line, and diversity has been shown to increase creativity, innovation and agility within organizations.
Many organisations are taking the research to heart by addressing diversity in hiring practices. However, too often new diverse talent is not being truly included. Their voices are not being heard and their skills are not fully leveraged.
Duke Corporate Education offers organisations the opportunity to start a new dialogue about diversity and provide leaders with the mindsets to create an inclusive climate where everyone can thrive.
The Human Difference – A Recap of the Event
Organisations, executives and the people they lead face new types of opportunities and dilemmas – issues that are driven by the rise of digital networks, cultural disruption, and stresses both for people and ecosystems.
This situation is one that is directly addressed by Duke Corporate Education’s purpose – preparing leaders for what’s next – and it provided the context for the annual event “The Human Difference – Reimagining Leadership and the Future of Work”. Bringing leaders of learning, strategy, HR and technology together with expert practitioners, the event explored the kind of world that is emerging, and the implications for leaders and organisations.
