How can we empower middle managers to be leaders?

"Shifting culture is never fast or easy: consistency is the key to delivering a sustainable change to be proud of.

"Inclusion is what you do every day inside and outside of work."

Oli O'Donoghue - MBE is Managing Director of Mortgages for HSBC. She been working in the banking sector since 2008 and was recognised for her services to diversity in the financial sector last year when King Charles awarded her an MBE.

She has recently returned to the mortgage sector: Oli left Barclays Bank in 2017 as National Performance Director of Mortgages. At HSBC, where she has been for seven years, she was previously Managing Director – Branch Network.

Oli will share her insights into how we can empowering middle managers to become DEI leaders at our INCLUSION conference, broadcasting online from 1 to 5 July. She will be joined by Natasha Whitehurst, Head of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging, Rolls-Royce, and Suzanna Chaplin, CEO at esbconnect.
