Mike and I had a wonderful conversation with inclusion specialist Jo Lockwood.

– “I decided about three and a bit years ago that I needed to make a change, so I not only made a change of career, I also took the opportunity to gender transition at the same point. I came out of that with a passion for inclusion, belonging and trying to make the world a better place” – 2.10

– “As I got to the world around the HR and D&I space, I realised that it is not just about me or people like me, it is about everybody. Everybody has a need for greater belonging, to create an environment where everybody can thrive. I have expanded my thinking to be inclusive of all people” – 3.10

– “Show your workings out. If you just show your answer and its wrong, you have no evidence of how you got there. Don’t just tell me what you think, tell me how you got to the point of what you think” – 28.30

– “Rather than have D&I as a bolt-on, I wanted to turn it on its head and put inclusion at the heart and everything else bolting into that. Everything should have an inclusion lens” – 30.10
