"Common Purpose’s track record in widening leadership to a more diverse audience is unparalleled"
"Common Purpose championed diversity within leadership long before it was valued by businesses and institutions. By recognizing the need for – and supporting – leaders from many different backgrounds, they were not just years ahead – they were decades ahead. My Common Purpose programme made me more confident in my abilities and gave me the partnership-working skills I needed to be successful in my role as Borough Commander. It’s the best leadership course I’ve ever done in my life."
We develop inclusive leaders who can build diverse, agile, resilient teams. Of all leaders who completed Common Purpose programmes last year:
Many organizations recognize their D&I work could be more more effective.*
*Taken from the PwC Global Diversity & Inclusion Survey – a multi-year, global, cross-industry survey that explores what D&I programmes organizations have in place, and the impact they are having on employee experience.
Common Purpose offers a proven, viable proposition for organizations who are serious about investing in the leadership potential of historically marginalized groups.
Our unique approach to leadership development focuses on supporting leaders to cross boundaries – of culture, sector, background and belief – and helps organizations and communities remove barriers to diversity by developing more inclusive cultures. Organizations turn to Common Purpose to grow and develop their talent pool because we focus on the skills and experiences that leaders need to progress to – and thrive in – more senior roles.
"Too often, D&I initiatives promise the earth and don't deliver. Whereas Common Purpose's approach is genuinely transformational, especially for emerging leaders who come from diverse backgrounds. A real strength when seeking evidence and purpose in the work we do, in an ever changing world."
