How to Lead with Diversity with Kanchan Prinsloo

Leading with Diversity with Roxanne Derhodge and Kanchan Prinsloo

Quote: “There is a desire to create diversity of thought and diversity of experience.  Since this past year, it’s absolutely looking at the race perspective as well.”  Kanchan Prinsloo

As we watched the events of the past several months unfold, we see how race relations are at the forefront in all aspects of our society.  Leadership is no exception, so today we’re thrilled to welcome Diversity expert, Kanchan Prinsloo to discuss her thoughts on how to be more inclusive and diverse when leading.

As a leader who worked in various senior positions for over twenty-five years, Kanchan has experienced first-hand the unique pressures associated with being at the intersectionality of race and gender in a leadership role.  It is these experiences along with ongoing work, that shape Kanchan’s approach to coaching and built her practice in supporting culturally diverse leaders and organizations.
