How Your Startup Can Promote Diverse Hiring and Inclusive Leadership

Diverse Hiring and Inclusive Leadership Is How Startups Thrive

The biggest challenge for any startup founder is to achieve high productivity from a lean team with a tight budget. Shortages in local talent and stiff competition from larger employers are major obstacles that startups in Singapore must overcome in order to succeed. Many local startup founders already hire diverse talent only to struggle with integrating teams of different capabilities, genders, ages and cultural backgrounds.

Come, join Roslina Chai and Laurindo Garcia from Catalyse Consulting for a panel discussion with Beverly Dolor from WeWork on 20th August, 2019. At this discussion, founders and hiring managers will be able to:

  • Learn how inclusive recruitment practices can help startups gain the competitive edge in the Singapore talent market.
  • Gain tips on nurturing an inclusive workplace culture that enables diverse teams to become high performing teams.
  • Hear case studies of Singapore startups who have led successfully through inclusion.

Roslina and Laurindo are both serial entrepreneurs with a background in tech startups in Asia. Catalyse Consulting is a proud member of the WeWork Community.

East-West Cultural Diversity

East-West Cultural Diversity

Suitable for: General staff/Managers/HR Practitioners
Recommended Duration: 4 hours

This workshop on cross-cultural understanding and sensitivity builds on the core functional competencies of participants to help them work more efficiently with multi-cultural and international clients and staff. It creates awareness of the impact of culture in areas such as communication, negotiation, decision-making processes and teamwork.

Based on the framework of the Seven Dimensions of Culture Model by Trompenaars Hampden-Turner, this workshop explores how different orientations along various dimensions can have diverse values. Upon recognising these differences, participants will become more receptive of them by understanding that ‘Different’ does not mean ‘Wrong’ or ‘Bad’.

How Unconscious Bias Affects Mothers Returning to the Workforce

How Unconscious Bias Affects Mothers Returning to the Workforce

Many women find it hard to return to work. Are negative perceptions and unconscious bias hampering women who want to return to work?

Susanna Nickalls, our Director of Catalyse Consulting gives an insight to unconscious bias by sharing why we have biases and why it is important to be more aware of them and talk about them.

By taking the Gender-Career Implicit Association Test, we can understand how quickly we associate female and male terms to family and career. The Implicit Association Test shows that 3 in 4 people have an automatic association of Male with Career and Female with Family.

This shows that there is a need for us to be more aware so that we can overcome the automatic association we make that might hinder women to rejoin the workforce.
