Group Manager Diversity & Organisational Effectiveness, St Barbara Mining Limited


Bring Your Whole Self To Work

Giulia will share some real life learnt lessons from the mining industry (that can be transferred and applied to all work environments). Core discussion will focus on influencing positive change through inclusive leadership behaviours such as values-based communication, storytelling and role modelling, to foster a culture of belonging and high performing teams.

Outcomes from the session include;

  • Learn how to create moments that matter through equitable opportunity for employees to participate and learn together.
  • Understand some of the core dimensions of diversity and inclusion, as well as the impacts (both challenges and opportunities) to employees, business and broader community.
  • Hear about the skills, knowledge and behaviours to improve your work environment to be more inclusive.
  • Progress to an informed mindset shift from the personal growth developed through self-reflection and learning from others experiences.
