be human

creating a culture of fairness with Baroness Shami Chakrabarti CBE

virtual private roundtable
24 May, 2-3PM BST [3pm CET]

Liberty... sums up the triumph of the human spirit and human rights values of dignity, equality and fairness.

Baroness Shami Chakrabarti CBE

“82% of Employees Report Working Environment Lacks Fairness” [Gartner HR Research, 2021].

Debates that have fairness at the core, whether it’s around race, climate change, or Covid vaccine distribution, have become flashpoints in society. The same is true for companies. According to analysis of S&P 500 earnings calls, the frequency with which CEOs talk about issues of equity, fairness and inclusion on these calls has increased by 658% in the last 4 years.

New levels of remote and dispersed working will accelerate liquidity amongst your employees, and perceived issues around fairness and equity can cause a significant and rapid disconnect with your employees.

Joining us is Baroness Shami Chakrabarti CBE, the shadow attorney general for England and Wales from 2016 to 2020 and the former director of the charity, Liberty. For the last two decades, Shami has fiercely battled government, media and public opinion, fought for human rights and tirelessly challenged legislation that infringed upon civil liberties. Her story compels us to look within and question the fairness of our own choices

So, how do you best navigate the issue of fairness at a time when the needs of your people are increasingly diverse?

Baroness Shami Chakrabarti CBE served as the shadow attorney general for England and Wales from 2016 to 2020 and was the director of Liberty (formerly the National Council for Civil Liberties) for over a decade. Shami challenged government, media and public opinion, fought for human rights and challenged legislation that infringed civil liberties.

In her tenure as director of Liberty, Shami worked tirelessly to implement an ethos of fairness and collaboration. Doing so helped to advance the charity in profile and professionalism, making them a formidable and respected force in public debate.

Having spent her professional career challenging the fairness of decisions made by senior leaders, Shami’s insights compel us to look within and question the fairness of our own choices. Only once we have assessed our own actions can we grow as human leaders, and Shami is expertly positioned to reflect this.
