Diversity and Inclusion
Conference 2020

This event has been postponed
New event format or dates to be announced

The CIPD Diversity and Inclusion Conference on 29 April 2020 at the Hallam Conference Centre in London has been postponed – new event format or dates to be announced.

Updated 20th March

The CIPD and Haymarket Media Group (who deliver events on behalf of the CIPD) have been closely monitoring the situation with regard to Coronavirus on a daily basis and the welfare of our delegates is always front of mind.

In this instance, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the event to the nearest suitable opportunity in the future or to present this as an online, virtual event.

We have not made this decision lightly but we want to ensure we can provide the best experience possible for attendees.

If you have booked on the event your booking will be automatically confirmed for the revised date which will be announced as soon as possible. Please contact the Customer Services team on or phone: +44 (0)20 8267 3200 if you need further information.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused and we thank you for your continued support.
