Queer Leadership 101: Psychological Safety - What Is It? And Why Do I Need It?

Marie-Helene Tyack, Nicole Simpson, Obella Obbo and Scott Sallée explore the foundations of psychological safety and how it can transform our leadership.

In this live panel discussion we unpacked the foundations of psychological safety and how it can transform our leadership –to support the wellbeing of our LGBTQ+ colleagues, create space for innovation in their everyday interactions, and ensure a lasting culture of belonging.

Overview of session:

- Psychologically safe cultures exist by design, through conscious, consistent efforts to build spaces that reward vulnerability and generate cultures of belonging – where historically excluded and underserved groups can contribute new ideas and feel empowered to imagine new ways of being through innovation and inclusion.

- Help create cultures of safety where LGBTQ+ colleagues feel safe to speak up.

- Explore ways to leverage intersectionality to foster an inclusive mindset.

- Learn how to impact culture change through radical empathy.
