Fostering Culturally Diverse Leadership and Migrant
Fri March 17, 2023
New Zealand 3 – 4:30 PM

As the war for talent continues, many countries are on the lookout for migrants to fill skill gaps. Further,
with the increasing focus of investors and employees on ESG (Environment, Social and Governance), it is
increasingly important that an organization’s leadership ranks are diverse. Companies, therefore, must
take different steps to attract, recruit and retain talent.
What are the steps that career counselors and career development coaches can take to better support the
careers of their aspiring culturally diverse leaders and skilled migrants? In this session, leveraging her
academic research and professional experience, Karen Loon will cover the following:
 Diversity and inclusion
 Identity and identity work
 Factors impacting career advancement of culturally diverse leaders in cross-cultural organizations
 Difference between the experiences of women and men
 How organizations influence people at work
