OK COOL is tapped into Gen-Z culture like no other company we’ve worked with. Their culture is as exciting and highly responsive as Gen Z themselves.
Part of being responsive in today’s world includes colleagues being able to have conversations that impact each other in truly meaningful ways – where we can maintain connections and trust whilst navigating EDI realities.
The SLT at OK COOL took the lead by developing their understanding of Race, Inclusion and Belonging. And then we ran all-employee workshops on Working with Inclusion & Respect, and Microaggressions.
Building trusted relationship with leaders is key to our work and so we’re very proud to receive this testimonial from Jolyon Varley, Co-Founder & CEO.
Testimonial from Jolyon Varley, Co-Founder and CEO
Heeral's way of talking about topics that are sensitive and that can seem intimidating, played an influential part in helping us build our vision of inclusion. Her approach is pragmatic and respectful - there is no labelling people as good or bad - there's compassion when mistakes are made, and there's accountability too.
More SLTs and companies need to look at EDI in this way - because it's the only way towards meaningful change.
Heeral, your sessions were illuminating and inspiring. The whole team at OK COOL are grateful for the valuable, practical learnings, and for our subsequent peer relationship, galvanised by LinkedIn. I feel like we are set up to navigate EDI confidently now. And that’s a good feeling
