This is fostered through a culture where people can be their true authentic self, where individualism and inclusion is embraced, and having the right ingredients to enable people to thrive.

Louise believes that at this pivotal time it is crucial for leaders to come together. She would like this group to collaborate and share knowledge to come up with solutions that have the greatest impact in addressing our wellbeing challenges across all industries and colleague needs.
