Program Overview


Real change starts from the top and needs to be woven into the fabric of daily operations, not just reserved for events like International Women’s Day or left solely to HR. 

The Inclusion Habits for Operations Leaders program is designed to drive this transformation. 

This 14-week program, developed in collaboration with NAWO member organisations, taps into the power of neuroscience, which tells us that new habits develop in as few as 50 repetitions, technology and personalised coaching to: 

  • Learn: Complete 10-20 minutes of habit-changing, app-based ‘micro-learning’ a day. 
  • Experiment: Throughout the program, participants put their newfound learning into action through exploring real-life, operations-industry-based scenarios and resources that bring the concepts of inclusion and equity to life and trying out practical ‘experiments’ that boost personal growth and organisational impact.
  • Discuss: Attend regular webinars and benefit from frequent check-ins with experienced ‘Inclusion Coaches’ to reinforce the app-based learning.

Program Development

A program developed by Ops Leaders for Ops Leaders 

What makes Inclusion Habits for Operations Leaders so impactful is that the course was developed in direct collaboration with operations leaders like you, ensuring that it speaks your language and addresses your specific needs.  

This means that the corporate scenarios, imagery and language reflect real-world experiences and that you’ll find yourself in familiar territory with terminology, situations and examples drawn directly from the challenges and triumphs of your peers.

Our pilot program delivered impressive results, generating a total of 2,886 tangible benefits across the participating organisations. The impact of these was evident in various areas of business performance including enhanced customer and employee engagement, improved safety and wellbeing, increased diversity, boosted productivity, agile leadership development, optimised asset utilisation and strengthened talent pipelines. 

At a personal level, participants gained insights into 

  • The importance of inclusion and consequences of exclusion and a lack of diversity on individuals, teams and organisations.  
  • The difference between ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’, and between equality and equity.  
  • Different types of bias, and strategies to mitigate their own biases and effectively address bias in others.  
  • How to have difficult and courageous conversations about inclusion and difference in the workplace, and how to lead teams towards a more inclusive environment.  
  • How to make the connection between the daily practice of inclusive leadership and bottom line results.
