Inclusion Initiative at London School of Economics - LGBT in the City
The Inclusion Initiative at London School of Economics is a new initiative aiming to create a more diverse and inclusive City. The initiative uses behavioural science insights to recognise and improve inclusion within City of London firms that will also benefit the bottom line.
Karina Robinson is the CEO of Robinson Hambro Ltd, Master of the Worshipful Company of International Bankers Co-Director and Senior Visiting Fellow of The Inclusion Initiative at London School of Economics. She co-founded the initiative with Grace Lordan, Associate Professor in Behavioural Science.
She says “The Inclusion Initiative aims to ensure all voices are heard in the workplace. That is the way to achieve increased innovation and productivity - and well being! We started the monthly Open Door, Open City webinars - the title speaks for itself - to give those voices a platform. Whether it's Alderman Tim Hailes talking about being the City’s first openly gay Lord Mayor (subject to election) or Lord Bilimoria talking about the Change the Race Ratio campaign to improve BAME advancement in business, it’s an opportunity to explore the issues with those in the driving seat of change.”
In this webinar with Alderman Timothy Hailes JP they discuss LGBT diversity and inclusivity within the City, and what can be done to increase it. This open and empowering conversation doesn’t shy away from the tough questions, but leaves the listener with many powerful messages to reflect on.
