Women in Confidence with Lisa Mulligan - Women in Confidence

Episode 61

A Conversation about Diversity and Inclusion with Lisa Mulligan from The Culture Ministry

My guest this week is Lisa Mulligan, Founder of The Culture Ministry and host of A Dog called Diversity podcast.

Lisa is an experienced human resources and Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) leader and the Founder of The Culture Ministry, a pragmatic and experienced consultancy and membership network offering Diversity & Inclusion support and development provided by experienced people who have actually delivered Diversity & Inclusion work within organisations.

She has over 20 year’s experience in global organisations focusing on human resources, organisational change and development, and Diversity & Inclusion. She's worked with leaders to devise Diversity & Inclusion strategy, goals and supporting actions, implemented inclusion initiatives and have credible experience in Diversity & Inclusion governance reporting, preparation of board papers and providing market research for boards and executive teams.

She has also been an expat in a number of countries and that has taught her a lot about confidence and resilience.



In this episode we talk about the challenges of embedding D&I into organisations, ask ourselves whether we still need International Women's Day and how growing up on a farm gave Lisa confidence & much more.

Hello, I'm Vanessa, the host of Women In Confidence. Welcome and thanks for listening. I designed this podcast to appeal to working women who want to understand what confidence is, what you can do to build (or rebuild) your confidence and then maintain it. I interview amazing women who have genuine stories to tell about their journey through life and how they manage the ups and downs of life. My vision is for my listeners to try something that has worked for my guests and if it changes their lives then I feel that the podcast has been a positive contribution to the world.

If you enjoyed this episode or any of the Women In Confidence episodes, please like, rate, review and share widely so that more fabulous women can find us. Also check out my Instagram and TikTok pages for more content and confidence boosting inspiration.

I hope 2023 has going well for you - I can't believe it is nearly April and it is approaching Autumn here in Australia. My ambition, for Women In Confidence, this year is to reach some milestone download numbers per episode and to find a sponsor. Let me know what you are hoping to achieve in 2023.

Vanessa Murphy

Vanessa is a HR Consultant, The Founder of Boom Podcast Agency and a Podcast Host.
Vanessa got her first proper job in 1998 when she joined as an Officer in the Royal Navy and then after 15 years doing that, she transitioned into senior HR and Culture roles working for organisations all over the world.
She now has 2 strings to her bow....
Firstly, she is an empath, avid people watcher and she likes to observe people when they were operating with confidence and self-belief and learn strategies, tools and techniques from them. She helps women with confidence at work and her Women In Confidence podcast is a way for her to share her knowledge and her network with a wider audience.

Secondly, she has always been fascinated by what makes a company great to work for and now devotes her time to creating workplaces that not only have impressive performance but are also human centred - hint... they are not mutually exclusive. Her Conversations About Company Culture podcast is her way of sharing ways to build great organisations.
