Online Employee Network Leadership Programme

Turn passion into action and join organisations around the world, developing leaders 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 a heightened sense of belonging and community within businesses, accelerating change and, most importantly, voicing essential on-the-ground experiences from their members and customers.

Networks have been a mechanism for delivering D&I strategy; but now they are also influencing that strategy. 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

Our popular programme has trained leads in more than 70 countries, so whether their network represents a protected characteristic or a shared interest or activity, our flexible course will ensure your leaders get the support they need – wherever they are.

Testimonials

Great 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.

Disney LGBT+ Lead

Thank you Radius. I thoroughly enjoyed the programme and got a lot of practical things out of it that I’m already applying at Google. I will be advocating the value of this programme to other organisations and wider network.”

Our networks are maturing, innovating and collaborating more effectively as a result of working with Radius, we would recommend working with them to any other business.
