Bring your authentic self to work

When people feel themselves at work – not pressured to shape their personalities and background to fit a norm, they thrive. For people of colour and underrepresented groups, it’s more difficult to enjoy that kind of professional freedom and the pressure to conform can ultimately stifle their unique contribution. Lets change this!

We know that performance can be positively impacted by up to 85% when people feel themselves at work – and not pressurised to shape their personalities and background to fit a norm.

For people of colour and underrepresented groups, it’s more difficult to enjoy that kind of professional freedom. They lack representation in boardrooms, they face unconscious bias, and pressure to conform.


Bring your authentic self to work

being-yourself-imageBeing authentic at work means being you. This has to involve understanding your true self so that you can enjoy the fulfilment and productivity that come with living and working according to your true values.

What defines who you are? You are not your job role, what others say about you, your self-doubts, ethnicity, race, gender, LGBTQI+ experience or an underrepresented group. It is easy to use these labels, our experiences and heritage to define who we are.

Creating a workplace that celebrates everyone’s authentic value starts with you being yourself. So, who are you?

You are your unique character, who you think you are, your self-concept. You are your inner consciousness, your voice, personal energy, principles and standards of behaviour. Your values are what you believe to be important in the way that you live and work. Your essence never changes, you will always feel like you.

Our movement seeks to ensure that everyone has the freedom to be themselves at work. Be part of the change, for yourself, and for others.

and not pressured to shape their personalities and background to fit a norm. For people of colour and underrepresented groups, it’s more difficult to enjoy that kind of professional freedom. They lack representation in boardrooms, they face unconscious bias, and pressure to conform can ultimately stifle their ability to perform.

#BeYourselfAtWork is a movement to free the workplace from expectations of conformity and uniformity and celebrate difference. We know that organisations who value truly diverse workforces enjoy better productivity and better happiness in the workplace. So, we’re driving forward change in the workplace – and letting all kinds of individuals shine.

#BeYourselfAtWork is leading all workplaces to value the unique experiences that shape us as individuals, and understand that they’re strengths. We’re on a mission to propel true diversity within work culture, and teach leaders that celebrating rather than diminishing difference is the key to creating dynamic teams.
