Mr. Ola Hoem, Deputy Director General of IDI, inaugurated the Masterclass with a powerful message: "In today's rapidly evolving world, where change is the only constant, organisations and leaders must recognise the tremendous value that diversity brings to the table. Inclusive leadership is not merely a buzzword or a trendy concept; it is a fundamental pillar that drives innovation, fosters collaboration, and creates a positive impact on individuals, teams, and entire communities."

Over the course of the three days, participants delved deep into the essence of inclusive leadership, understanding its crucial role in successful governance. They openly shared their current diversity and inclusiveness practices within their respective SAIs, fostering a collaborative and enriching environment.
