STRIVING TO BECOME AN INCLUSIVE ORGANISATION: WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED FROM THE JOURNEY SO FAR?
Hosted by Daniel Scott, Senior OD Lead (Interim) at St George’s NHS University Hospitals Trust
Thursday 17 December 14:00 – 15:30
St George’s is a large NHS organisation of nearly 9000 people based in South West London. Earlier in 2020, the OD Team initiated an ambitious programme to build an inclusive organisational culture.
Over the first few months, it has at times felt focused and with powerful breakthroughs, and at other times it has felt clumsy and simply unmoveable.
Daniel Scott will share his experience of the first phase of this culture development programme, sharing his reflections and learning on:
- The big ‘I’: Shaping and reshaping the organisational approach, strategy and long term intervention plan
- The little ‘I’s: Designing and delivering a range of products and group level interventions
- The ‘I’: Learnings on his personal growth and use of self
Using St George’s as a case study, this webinar will welcome input and ideas from others to share learnings on what works and doesn’t work when doing D&I work in organisations.
Daniel Scott Bio
Daniel’s career in OD spans 20 years, for most of which he has led Learning and OD functions in organisations including Amnesty International, Diabetes UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, and Save the Children International. After an initial career path in Physiotherapy, Daniel has completed postgradutate studies in Occupational Psychology, Counselling, Action Learning Facilitation and most recently in OD Practice with the NTL Institute.
In 2017, Daniel established Open Bracket Consulting, working mainly with social-purpose organisations including Teenage Cancer Trust, Brooke, the Civil Service and UNICEF, on a broad range of short and mid term OD projects. Although a proud generalist, Daniel is particularly interested in action learning and research, employee motivation and engagement, and critical theory.
A few months into the Covid-19 outbreak, an opportunity emerged to support St George’s to strengthen its culture in a longer term interim capacity. Centring on diversity and inclusion, this culture project has enabled Daniel to apply his newer and growing knowledge and skills in the field of EDI, while taking a more longitudinal, system-wide approach.
