Jackie Handy has supported hundreds of individuals and organisations internationally to optimise their performance, develop leaders, and embed inclusion through her company Runway Global.
She is a TEDx speaker and the author of two books – the most recent: The Little Book of Belonging: Your Weekly Guide to Inclusive Habits, which she wrote while quarantined during the COVID-19 pandemic to encourage others to consistently take small behavioural steps toward inclusivity.
When not working in her home office in Shropshire, England, Jackie enjoys bottle feeding her neighbour’s lambs and spending quality time with her partner.
Jackie joins me today to discuss the power of self-reflection around the themes of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. She elaborates on ways to encourage safe conversations and create inclusive work environments.
She reveals how joining the Professional Speakers Association (PSA) allowed her to share key personal life experiences in her speaking engagements and inspired her to spread the vital message of inclusion in her training courses and speaking engagements.
Jackie also dives into how she connects with her audience on social media, why she has embraced video as a way to share her insights, and shares her tips on how to create valuable video content.
“When we leverage the power of humanity in all its forms, we really have the possibility to make magic happen.”Jackie Handy
