A space for an open conversation about the opportunities and challenges of genuine engagement with people whos’ voices often go unheard, including the role of leaders in creating a listening culture that is responsive to the needs of marginalised groups. This session offers participants a chance to explore how as leaders they can build their competence and confidence in responding to an ever-changing world. A world in which people expect fairness and equity to be at the heart of public policy and practice, and the alignment of core values with action.
