Popular Talks by Daniele Fiandaca

The Benefits of Men Leaning into Inclusion and Diversity

Esther Perel, the relationship expert and psychologist recently said “We’ve spent the past 50 years discussing what it means to be a woman. Women have examined their relationships, their identity, their sense of agency, at home and at work. And now, maybe for the first time, we’re at a moment where men could have the same opportunity to redefine themselves—but I worry that we aren’t giving men, or women, the resources they need to get there.”
Daniele will use his own journey from CEO of an ad agency to becoming an inclusion and development consultant and founder of Token Man Consulting to explore the importance of men leaning into inclusion and diversity and why this has benefits for everyone. He will provide an insight of what he has learnt in relation to exclusion, allyship and becoming an agent of change and will also touch on the damage the current system has on men, women and non-binary people alike. He will share real life examples of benefits men have found from leaning in and how we can all benefit from becoming more culturally intelligent, empathetic and vulnerable. Expect to come away with a better understanding of the positive personal benefits of leaning into inclusion and diversity as well as actions you can take to become a better ally and agent of change.

Inclusion is for everyone

If we look at history, no minority has affected change without the support of the majority and engaging men is fundamental to a successful Inclusion and Diversity strategy. In this talk Daniele will pull on his experience at the forefront on inclusion and diversity as the co-founder of Token Man and Utopia, to bring to life some of the key barriers to inclusion and diversity in the workplace and what needs to change to help create meaningful change. In particular he will look at some of the damage the patriarchy does to men and how inclusion benefits almost everyone.  He will also provide  some top tips which will include listening courageously, leaning into discomfort, being a brave leader and hacking the system.
Expect everyone to come away with a much better understanding of how DEI/inclusion and diversity benefits them] as well as practical tips on how to become a better leader and a better human.
