Opening keynote: How far have we come and how far do we still need to go on the I&D front?

While it’s clear that there has been an increasing conversation about moving the dial on inclusion and diversity, have things actually changed in the way businesses operate? This opening keynote will explore the steps organisations have taken to build a more inclusive workplace and welcome diverse teams and how far they still have to go to ensure equality among their people. Practical takeaways on:

  • how organisations understanding of bias and discrimination has changed and what else need to be done
  • how the latest social and economic events will affect organisations’ I&D initiative
  • how to raise awareness among your employees around diversity issues.
