  • Moving the Scale Towards Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

    The world has become a global hub and a melting pot of cultures. However, the administrative profession’s leadership, bodies, attendance at conferences and networks are not proportionally representative and inclusive of such rich fabric that we call diversity.

    The Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Report, first presented at the World Administrators’ Summit 2021, was a starting point towards understanding and establishing why representation is low at events, amongst our professional bodies, and in positions of leadership within the industry. Much more has to be done – we must hold raw, uncomfortable conversations with compassion, and an open mind to learn, teach and embrace our differences with empathy and kindness.
