From counting diversity to measuring inclusion:

How People Analytics can help the D&I agenda

Syngenta recognizes that human diversity is as important as biodiversity and is committed to fostering a diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace. Using people analytics to help drive the D&I agenda, our journey has taken us from counting diversity to measuring inclusion. With both qualitative and quantitative approaches, we are building a comprehensive way to understand D&I at Syngenta and identify areas for targeted actions.

Diversity & Inclusion is at the forefront of all our analytics work and we strongly believe in expanding the definition of diversity, one that includes nationality, tenure, generation, and other demographics. We take this lens to everything we do in order to foster a culture that embraces difference in all its forms, where people feel they belong and can be the best version of themselves.

With telling you our journey of accessibility and disability inclusion, we aim to enable you on your journey. In this session we will discuss the benefits this brought to us and will also bring to you.
We will provide practical strategies on delivering inclusive recruitment so you can remove barriers to benefitting from disabled talent. Inclusive recruitment is good for all businesses and ensures disabled people do not miss out on applying and gaining employment. 
We will focus on ways to embed inclusive practices to ensure that disabled people are able to demonstrate their talents and progress within any business. To reduce the disability employment gap, we need to maximise the value of every talented person. We will highlight key ways that organisations of all sizes can practically embed inclusion at the heart of everything they do.
To close we will discuss our practices on inclusive remote working and return to work scenarios.

15:55 – 16:20 Flying again!  Building back the aviation industry Aviation with Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at it's heart.

 

Aviation is the business of freedom, but in 2020 the freedom to travel, to meet people, to reconnect families, and to be with our loved ones was suddenly taken away.  With it went millions of jobs in the industry; pilots become Amazon delivery drivers, Cabin crew became care givers in temporary hospitals, and airports were empty!  As we start to rebuild the industry its an opportunity to build back with diversity at the core of what we do. 

-  Aviation Industry  - why we had the same number of female pilots as 1945!
-  25by2025 an industry wide initiative designed to improve diversity within the industry

Speaker's Biography

Deborah Croft

 

CEO

THRIVING TALENT

Event Chair

GOLD PARTNER

Deborah passionately believes implementing career & caring as a human capital strategy is critical to nurturing inclusive cultures and accelerating gender equality. The COVID pandemic has amplified the need for organisations to create ecosystems which enable employees to better integrate their caring responsibilities (be it self-care, caring for children, ageing parents, community members) and career aspirations.

Too often, professionals believe that they have to choose between personal and professional commitments, leading to either visible or invisible attrition. New ways of working are necessary to empower individuals to navigate life transitions and hold on to career goals. 

Deborah and partner Natalie Wilkins merged their businesses in 2016 to form Thriving Talent, to drive positive, sustainable change. Their delivery team is a diverse group of certified coaches, consultants and trainers (in addition to their other roles as mothers, fathers, teachers, home makers, taxi drivers, negotiators... ). 

Deborah has over 27 years of international experience in project and change management, coaching and training, with the latter 5 years also consulting on Inclusion & Diversity strategy. 

Much of Deborah’s time today is spent exchanging with organisations who are committed to improving ways of working and measuring the impact of the interventions provided by Thriving Talent.

With her extensive HR background across the public and private sectors, you benefit from Natalie’s deep experience of organizational change management, leading and managing teams, and coaching and advising leaders and executive within multicultural environments.
