HR Meetup | How business cultures affect equality and inclusion for Men (CB)

 Is your organisation ready to talk about workplace taboos?

Here at The ONE Group, we're passionate about wellbeing. In order to allow your organisation to open up about important mental health and wellbeing topics - our quarterly HR meetups are back for 2019. We have partnered up with Your People Potential to engage in discussions on topics such as mental outlook, diversity, female & male employee lifecycle.


How business cultures affect equality and inclusion for Men

Over the final ‘Talking Taboo’ themes we are exploring the challenges related to gender at work. In the summer we looked at the impact business cultures can have on women, now it’s time to turn the focus onto men.

In this session we will consider how some business cultures are moving away from the masculine constructs of management and beginning to embrace a more collaborative and flexible approach to managing people. We will be exploring the themes that this raises for men in the workplace.

These meetups are well attended by women, so we invite you to bring a male colleague to share their view of the changing world of work.


Jacqui Kemp

Your People Potential

Jacqui started her career in HR in 2001, becoming fully CIPD qualified in 2005. Working mostly in the software industry, her HR experience covered building new teams, merging teams post-acquisition, setting up short-term international assignments and implementing job-sharing programmes across international borders.

 While working in HR, Jacqui trained in Cognitive Therapy and NLP. After graduating in 2009 as an NLP Master Practitioner, she set up her own successful therapy business with private clients in Cambridge.

 During this time, Jacqui became aware that wellbeing was moving up the business agenda – but realised there was a lack of clarity and support for HR professionals to understand how to address mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. So, in 2013, merging her therapy and HR training, she set up Namasté Culture to help organisations align their wellbeing strategies with their business goals.
