Ruchika Tulsyan: Reinventing culture from the inside out
Jan 18, 2023 Season 4 Episode 1
David Lancefield

You’re looking to build a higher performing team, or organisation, where more people can do their best. 

Sounds simple, right?

But there are some biases and blockers in the way. You know that you’ve got work to do but you’re not sure where to start. You look around and realise that you hire and promote people who look like you and the other members of your leadership team, whether intentional or not. You want to be a good ally to people in under-represented or under-estimated groups but you’re not sure how to.

This podcast with Ruchika Tulshyan gives you practical ways to address these points, based on her extensive research, consulting work, and personal experience. 

We talk about:

  • How recruiters get it wrong when they talk about cultural fit.
  • How to tackle biases throughout your organisation.
  • Your responsibility if you have privilege.
  • How to practise allyship productively.
  • What it takes to ask the right questions of others
