Highlight#2 from TCP Live#6 - Promoting Diversity in the Workplace by Sunaina Vij




When we talk about what makes someone a successful leader, we typically describe attributes like the ability to innovate, make strategic decisions or manage uncertainty.

We rarely mention reflection among the core traits of a great leader.

One of the most admirable and arguably underrated qualities of leadership is the capacity for reflection.

In our last #TCPLive on “ How to promote diversity in the workplace?”, @SunainaVij, Founder, The Bridge, emphasized how leaders really need to reflect and explore inwardly on their unique roadmap for trying to make advancements in EDI for their organization.

If the leadership really values human capital, then the sincere reflection will open up the way for what changes need to be made and how they can be best implemented for the success and growth of the organization.

Diversity and inclusion start with the leaders.
