Workshops

 

Our workshops take you on a journey of discovery of the what, why and how of diversity. We think about the different definitions of diversity and explore the concept of cognitive diversity and why this is so important.

We think about the different cases for diversity, inclusion and belonging and uncover the various ways that clients are setting the agenda. We help teams understand why understanding this business case is just one way to help drive meaning change in firms.

We positively work with you to give practical steps on how you can embrace diversity in your teams.

We help your firms be able to become more confident in how to tackle some of these incredibly challenging topics in a way that works best for your people. As well as workshops we can support with:

  • Organisational Culture Diagnostics

  • Strategy Design and Implementation

  • Culture Change Programmatic Designs

Partnership with Doing Diversity Differently

Client Talk's partnership with Doing Diversity Differently brings together our experience working with professional services firms, with their strength in diversity consulting. This union represents the best of what diverse thinking can bring.  We challenge each other to look at problems from different perspectives and provide a unique solution for professional services firms.

 

Doing Diversity Differently was founded by Chico Chakravorty. Chico has over 15 years professional leadership experience across various sectors. Prior to setting up his company, he consulted as the Managing Director of a Diversity and Inclusion firm to make a difference to both clients and candidate experience around D&I initiatives. He helps organisations approach D&I through innovative and agile means.

 

Chico completed his MBA at Durham University Business School focusing on Management Consultancy and Leadership Culture. A keen violinist, Chico plays with different chamber groups and orchestras (including as a leader), chairs the board of trustees for a South Asian Dance Company, as well as a professional orchestra, and spends his remaining free time volunteering and advocating for numerous charities.

 

Doing Diversity Differently

Client Talk partners with Doing Diversity Differently to help firms create better employee engagement and succeed in delivering their diversity, inclusion and belonging (DIB) initiatives. We believe that creating a culture of belonging is good for professionals, good for firms and good for client relationships.  It is more than just an issue for HR. 

This is not just about how you set up networks and have more representation in your workplace. Do not get us wrong, that is important, but we work with firms to really do diversity differently. We work with diversity consultants and team coaches to help you create environments where more people can say that they belong, and help you to truly thrive and succeed.
