‘Mind the Inclusion Gap’ with author, Suzy Levy.
Join SWiFT for an intimate member-only evening with Suzy Levy, author of the thought-provoking ‘Mind the Inclusion Gap’.
Most of us are curious about diversity, and some would go so far as to call ourselves allies, but very few of us are skilled at inclusion. In the absence of knowing what to do, we double down on being nice and hope that will be enough. Unfortunately, this optimistic attitude may harm as much as help. This book is for anyone who wants to move beyond talking about diversity to actively shaping an inclusive future. Filled with insight and everyday skills, it will help you navigate the polarised and divisive issues we face in the workplace and in the world.
‘Fascinating … If you want to know how to start to solve the most challenging problems of inequality, rather than just talking about them, read this book’ Clare Balding
‘A powerful and thought-provoking journey into the world of diversity … An essential read for anyone who wants to make a difference’ Simon Goodman, Group CIO, Network Rail
‘Full of startling statistics and personal stories … A practical guide about how to change our perspectives’ Razia Iqbal, BBC News
About Suzy Levy
Suzy is a specialist in social change. She works with senior leaders across the public, private, education and third sectors to solve some of the most pressing social issues of our time. Although her experience is wide-ranging; from sales & marketing to major technology upgrades, new product launches and organisational mergers, Suzy is widely recognised for her pragmatic and thoughtful approach to inclusion and diversity, an area which is often emotive and messy.
In 2015, Suzy founded The Red Plate, a consultancy which supports clients in meeting the growing expectations of leadership. In addition to her client work, Suzy holds a variety of board-level roles. She was a non-Executive Director in the UK government for 7 years and currently sits on the Advisory Board at social entrepreneurship firm Foundervine, creative agency Improper, and as a Board Trustee for the Women’s Sport Trust.
Suzy is also an author. Mind the Inclusion Gap, her first book, summarises decades of learning about inclusion, and is designed to help readers move beyond fleeting (and often divisive) interactions to become more confident, capable, and conscious when it comes inclusion and diversity.
Originally from the Pacific Northwest of the United States, she now lives in London with her partner and two children.
