Episode 88: Be conscious! Why inclusion is a vital building block: Mary Bilbrey, former CHRO, JLL
Mary shares her experience in how to support business leaders to lead differently, and the changes she has seen in what’s required of successful leaders today.
Considering changes in working practices and culture, Mary advocates that HR must be intentional in designing the spaces in which we work, to ensure they contribute to talent strategy, and reflect company culture and values.
Explaining why inclusion is a vital building block to other programmes, Mary calls on everyone to be conscious in owning their journey, discusses how HR can facilitate, and why HR must hold leaders accountable for their behaviours.
Noting that HR is the voice in the room representing everyone, Mary calls on you to grab this opportunity, and responsibility.
