About this event

It’s widely understood today that inviting diverse thought into the boardroom is a welcome, even necessary, business objective. While all organisations must now meet the minimum requirements set by UK legislation – covering age, disability, race, religion, gender and sexual orientation among others – the most innovative organisations now want to delve deeper into the issues to create real value, both in terms of individual and organisational success.

In this full-day event, we give our stage to leaders who have a wide range of experience helping talent resourcing and business leaders develop their approach towards diversity and inclusivity in the boardroom.
