Inclusion Starts with Addressing Burnout: Celebrating Women's Day with Action

And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there's a sense of belonging, relevance and empowerment.” Whilst it’s great that we celebrate International Women's Day and the progress made, I believe that it is just as important for us to reflect on the challenges that persist for women in achieving a sense of inclusion within workplaces.  After all, it is one thing to feel inspired through these conversations and another to turn these initiatives into practical applications that truly support women to feel a sense of belonging and value in their workplace.   And to do this, we need to start by addressing the foundational and fundamental challenge that women are facing which is the silent epidemic of burnout. I believe it’s important to consider the role that diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging play within organisations in fostering a better sense of wellbeing for women which, in turn, results in increased retention rates and performance.  In this week's episode, we’ll explore the relationship between burnout and inclusion.  I address why burnout is not just a matter of personal well-being, but a crucial step towards fostering a more inclusive workplace and society for women. In particular, I dive into the 3 reasons why we need to look at burnout if we’re to inspire inclusion for women in the workplace. For all the show notes come on over to:
