About this Event

Diversity Matters: Inspiring Inclusion in the Workplace

Hiring new talent inclusively - not as easy as it looks?

We are pleased to announce the details of the fifth event in our Diversity Matters: Inspiring Inclusion in the Workplace series … and this time, we’re in Birmingham!

• Are you embarking on a targeted hiring programme?

• Are you looking at returners, ex-military veterans, women in traditionally male roles, or neurodiverse individuals

• Have you identified barriers to the inclusion of BAME, disabled, or older workers within your organisation?

• Or are you planning your 2020 Inclusion strategy?

Come along to Outsource UK Diversity Matters: Inspiring Inclusion in the Workplace on 12th February 2020 and hear from our esteemed speakers, who’ll be sharing case studies and lived experiences, and addressing the importance of physical and psychological inclusion for all.

Included in the day will be the opportunity to participate in intimate roundtable discussions with industry peers to push your own inclusion agenda forward.

Q. Who is this event for?

A. Simply put, everyone.

Whether shaping the inclusion strategy forms part of your remit, you are involved in redesigning work spaces, you are a line manager wishing to learn how to support your team’s psychological well being, or you would like to meet with like minded individuals and share your experiences, this conference is for YOU.

The details

Our whole day conference will be packed full of presentations, panel discussions, exhibitors showcasing their products designed to support your inclusion efforts, facilitated networking, and entry to the Science Museum.
