Our guest for episode 6, of the Making Business Human podcast, is Sue Unerman. Sue is the Chief Transformation Officer at Mediacom and is a well-respected voice within the media and advertising industry. Sue is also the author of two books on gender diversity and belonging within the workplace.
Sue explains to Anna that the leadership role needs to be reframed to include vulnerability and believes every individual in the organisation should be responsible for its culture and taking ownership for making the corporate world a kinder environment. She describes how Mediacom have invested heavily in workplace training in allyship and focusing on how to stick up for each other. Sue believes in the importance of a culture of belonging and says the big motivation behind writing both of her books was to ensure nobody’s talent is held back by unfairness or bias.
