Birds of a Feather Discussion (B7) Simon O'Toole (Australian Astronomical Optics (MQ))

Building Balanced Teams

Successful teams are built not just on good people, but the right people for the job. But how do you find the right people? How do you avoid selecting people just because they look like you, sound like you and think like you? How do you get the most out of the team you have? How do you develop and maintain trust in a complex stakeholder environment? In this BoF we will explore the importance of diversity and inclusion in building trust in teams, continuing from the discussions started at last year’s successful “How do you get the most of your teams?” BoF. There will be a series of presentations designed to address these issues and challenge attitudes, followed by an open floor discussion. Sign on url:
