Daniele Fiandaca is founder of Token Man Consulting, an inclusion and diversity consultancy which specialises in engaging men with the I&D strategy and inspiring them to become change-makers, creating workplaces that are truly inclusive and diverse. It does this through consultancy, events, research, training and thought leadership. An example of this is the highly regarded Masculinity in the Workplace event which has now been running for over 5 years and includes an annual research report on the level of Masculinity in the Workplace in the UK.
Previously, Daniele Fiandaca was co-founder of Utopia, an award winning culture change business that creates more inclusive, more entrepreneurial and healthier cultures for clients. Utopia’s top-to-bottom, boardroom to factory floor approach had clinched household names including Alexander McQueen, Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, Google, KP Snacks, Nestlé, Pepsico, Rolls Royce, Spotify, Unilever and Universal Music.
He was named one of Management Today’s Top 30 Male Agents of Change, and most recently, one of the Top 50 Trailblazers in Gender Equality in the UK. He has also co-authored a number of best selling books including Creative Superpowers: Equip Yourself for the Age of Creativity and was the co-founder of Creative Social, a global inspiration network for Creative Directors.
Prior to his career as an inclusion and diversity consultant, he worked in advertising where he positions as head of innovation and managing partner at Cheil Worldwide, and was CEO at Profero and has won numerous awards including a Gold Cannes Lions.
While allyship is not the only component for delivering workplaces (and societies) which are more inclusive and diverse, it is an important tool for creating change. In this talk, Daniele Fiandaca, co-founder of Token Man will examine the true nature of meaningful allyship and how you can each make a real difference. Ultimately you are only a truly ally if you are actively changing a system that is inherently broken and Daniele will provide some practical tips on how you can do this which encompass active listening, vulnerability, leaning out and becoming a better leader.
Expect to come away with a much better appreciation of what is needed to become a true ally and some practical things you can do tomorrow to create a workplace that is truly inclusive and diverse.
Esther Perel, the relationship expert and psychologist recently said “We’ve spent the past 50 years discussing what it means to be a woman. Women have examined their relationships, their identity, their sense of agency, at home and at work. And now, maybe for the first time, we’re at a moment where men could have the same opportunity to redefine themselves—but I worry that we aren’t giving men, or women, the resources they need to get there.”
Daniele will use his own journey from CEO of an ad agency to becoming an inclusion and development consultant and founder of Token Man to explore the damage traditional masculinity inflicts on men and how leaning into inclusion and diversity has benefits for everyone. Topics will include mental health, spending more time with children and loved ones, stress at work, inclusive leadership and vulnerability. He will also share real life examples of benefits men have found from leaning in. Expect to come away with a better understanding of the positive personal benefits of leaning into inclusion and diversity.
