Online Employee Network Leadership Programme

Join organisations across all industries developing​ leads with our 2020 Employee Network Leadership Programme

As the world transitions into new ways of working, the need for diversity networks and the vital functions they perform has increased dramatically. Our research shows networks are working more collaboratively to support employees’ wellbeing and keep communities connected, motivated and included, wherever they are.

We are seeing hybrid networks, with increasingly intersectional memberships, emerge out of this shared crisis. They are creating and enforcing a heightened sense of belonging within businesses and, most importantly, providing essential on-the-ground voices from their members and customers.

Networks have always been a mechanism for delivering D&I strategy; now they are influencing that strategy in more ways than ever. Recognising the value of your networks and investing in those that lead them will help your business bounce back from these challenging times and provide new opportunities to be sustainable, innovative and agile.

​’Networks are turning CAN’T DO into HAVE DONE‘ – Mark Mclane, Director of D&I, M&G

Whether their network represents a protected characteristic or a shared interest or activity, our flexible course will ensure your leads get the support they need at this time of rapid change – working from home or in the office.

Testimonials

Great foundational course for new leads! Well balanced theory vs practical content, I know more and have a good foundation to lead the network, with tools to overcome challenges I will face.

Uber BAME Network Lead

The programme was great, the Radius team were experts in their delivery and the content was really informative. What I found most useful was the time to self-reflect and share ideas with the group during our interactive sessions. The programme feels very personal and has had great benefits for everyone involved.
