Onto episode five and this week we are shining a spotlight on a leader who has shaped the strategic vision of organisations across the globe on diversity and inclusion.
Following a decade of guiding South African organisations on dismantling apartheid in the workplace, Heather Price has continued her mission for creating working environments that are psychologically safe. This is defined as a person’s willingness to bring their whole self to work – to speak up, propose new ideas, challenge traditional ways of doing things and take intelligent risks – all without fear of punishment, humiliation or career limitations.
Heather has presented at numerous international conferences on issues of inclusion, bias and psychological safety, paired with establishing consulting group Symmetra in Australia in 2003.
Listen in as I chat with Heather about her journey in breaking down barriers, creating a psychologically safe workplace and being aware of the unconscious bias that could be holding us back.
