		Diversity and inclusion across cultures: Russia, India, Mexico image

27 May 2021 at 2pm UK time/BST

Following on from our very successful first webinar exploring the D&I landscape in Brazil, Japan, South Africa, and the US, we are now hosting the second webinar in our "I is for Invitation" series. In the current climate, ensuring sensitivity, appropriateness and inclusivity is more important than ever. Brands are more and more at risk of being called out and criticised for posting problematic content, delivering the wrong messages, or even making empty claims.

When evolving at an international level, there are risks associated with pushing the D&I agenda without thinking of local cultural sensitivities.

So what does diversity and inclusion look like across different nations and cultures? What are the priorities, sensitive areas, and can a global framework meet all local requirements?

Join our panel of experts from India, Mexico and Russia who will answer some of those questions and provide insights into the diversity and inclusion landscape in their markets.

Feel free to share your questions and areas of interest in the form made available at registration in order to feed the conversation on the day.
