Episode #3: D.A.R.E – Building Diverse Teams

In this episode, hosts Aarti Balakrishnan and Faiza Farooq are joined by Helen Tudor. Helen is a Managing Director at Sheffield Haworth, a Global Executive Search and Talent Advisory Firm. She leads partner-level recruitment for organisations in the consulting and professional services sector and heads up their global diversity, equity and inclusion working group. We are thrilled to have her join us to discuss what it truly means to build diverse teams.

Key questions explored in this podcast:

  • What does diversity mean? Is gender diversity comprehensive enough?
  • How creatively does the HR team work to source candidates from underrepresented communities?
  • Can diverse teams be built in silos, or is the organisational buy in a pre-requisite?
  • How do you build a diverse team? What do you look for in people you hire into your team?
  • What is the role of a leader at each level in setting up diverse teams?
  • How would you approach advocating for a more diverse and inclusive working environment with a colleague/team who struggle to recognise its importance?
