Diversity Alchemy

To change the story of the human race in the 21st century, we have to change the stories we tell ourselves. This personal narrative could be influencing our ability to thrive today and into the future. If we want to create a more diverse and inclusive world, we must begin with igniting that transformation within ourselves. Diversity Alchemy is an African inspired session where Lilian shares her personal story of shifting from an excluded mindset into one of inclusive intersectionality. This perspective recognises that every human being will have many intersecting dimensions, for example, race, gender, disability, health, body type, sexuality, culture, religion and values. If we can begin to celebrate the intersectionality of diversity that exists within everyone, we can then be liberated to remove the masks that we wear that hide our true identity. Read less

Diversity Economies

The world is changing, and the boundaries that once divided us, are slowly being replaced by golden threads of unity. New perspectives magnified on the backdrop of digital disruption, artificial intelligence, climate change or global pandemics. Amidst this rapid change, the one economy we can rely on is human capital. Leveraging that capital is all about the celebration of diversity. In this presentation, Lilian decodes diversity as both an ethical and economical business strategy. She shows her audience how technology can be used to identity in gaps and ignite cultural transformations. Read less

Leading The Tribe

We are living in a time where leadership has been redefined. A time where organisations are being asked to represent all of humanity. An era where diversity and inclusion are part of the fabric of ethical business. Leaders can no longer ignore a lack of representation in gender, race, or any other blueprint for diverse DNA. This is the way of the future, and it will require leaders to implement and integrate diversity and inclusion strategies. Where do leaders begin on this journey? How do they progress in a meaningful way from where they are? This topic is designed to address these questions. Leading the Tribe is targeted at leaders who are willing to go on a journey of unlocking the tools that ignite diversity and inclusion, in order to effectively lead their organisational tribe.

Maximise the Benefits of Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace

Lilian is a Kenyan born Australian with a rich cross-cultural experience in Australia spanning over two decades. She has discovered significant barriers and opportunities in Australia in the areas of diversity, equality, equity and inclusion. 

As a result, she is passionate about flipping the narrative that diversity is not only an ethical or social decision, but an economic one. 

Lilian has always been inspired by understanding human drive. She holds a postgraduate diploma in psychology from the University of Wollongong and is a qualified counsellor, trained at the Australian College of Applied Psychology. She has had more than 14 years’ experience working in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. During this time, Lilian has leveraged her cultural heritage to serve a diverse client portfolio including government, insurers, medical specialists and an international speaking community.

There is no denying that the world has changed in ways that were unimaginable less than a decade ago. Through global pandemics, artificial intelligence, emerging technologies and climate change, it has become evident that boundaries are beginning to dissolve. The one golden thread that unites us is our humanity

So, what does this mean for the success as an individual and your organisations in the 21st century? This very question drives Lilian Kikuvi who has been focused on decoding the intersection between diversity and the role it plays in propelling an individual and organisations into a future that supercharges the power of inclusivity.

Lilian launched her consultancy with a focus on bridging the gap between the role of organisational diversity today and the possibilities for what it could look like tomorrow. 

Lilian takes a considered, methodical and intersectional approach, which is supported to by research, to unearth and harness the gifts on offer in diversity and inclusion. This holistic approach challenges what is considered diverse is not always obvious, and more often than not, it is hidden or yet to emerge.

Along with her consultancy, Lilian is professional speaker and facilitator with a focus on decoding diversity and helping individuals and leaders to connect with the power of inclusivity. Consequently, helping them value what makes us different when unified, is what makes us stronger. As a speaker and facilitator, Lilian is poised, refined, knowledgeable, and she walks her talk.

As a member of Equal Employment Opportunity Network (EEON), Lilian believes that systematic and sustainable change can only happen when people collaborate. Harambee  is a word in her native language that represents this important collaborative process. This Harambee spirit has led to her strategic partnership with Future Crunch, a think tank made of unlike minds on a mission to foster intelligent and optimistic thinking. 

Lilian is a highly trained and experienced Speaker and Facilitator. She is sought after by Private, Public and Not for Profit sectors. Her clients have included Fidelity International, eNett International, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO), Medibank Private, Open Universities, Western Bulldogs Australian Football League (AFL) club, Fundraising Institute Australia, Culturally Diverse Women, Melton Council and Parkville Juvenile Corrections Centre.
