Event description
Unpacking the invisible, Accelerating Transformation, Achieving meaningful impact

About this Event

Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) remains two of the most important ethical governance issues for businesses today. Yet progress on diversification initiatives has been slow. Various transformation initiatives continues to fail short in achieving right changes and impact year on year. Businesses are still uncertain about how they can most effectively use diversity and inclusion to support their growth and value-creation goals. Harnessing meaningful diverse and inclusive workplace culture and people – to create products and serve an increasingly diverse consumer base and markets, foster the right decisions, empower people based on ability and equal access to opportunities – are vital to the success, performance and profitability of every business and organisation today. Businesses should increasingly begin to regard diversity and inclusion as a source of competitive advantage and specifically as a key enabler of growth.

Join us in Birmingham, UK for critical conversations on key issues on Diversity and Inclusion in business, including:

  • Putting D&I delivery initiatives at the source: Time to end diversish and inclusish
  • Closing ethnic minority pay gap disparities: Can we make it illegal?
  • Outlook on D&I in public and healthcare services: Inclusive access and service delivery
  • Ethnic and cultural diversity on executive teams: Fostering inclusive and culturally diverse leadership on the front
  • Bridging the opportunity gaps: Tackling recruitment, talent and career growth complexities
  • Harnessing diverse workplace culture that foster and leverage best thinking and ability
  • Shaping everyday right decisions: Challenging stereotypes, un/conscious and implicit bias
  • Intercultural communication: Understanding cross-cultural complexity, identities and variations
  • Changing policies and strategies within: Putting D&I on corporate agenda
  • Driving D&I in finance and banking: Inclusive finance and gender lensing
  • Developing products and services of the future: Diversity in innovation and design thinking
  • Delivering sustainable growth: Achieving superior performance and profitability through diversity
  • Using Big Data and analytics to make a difference, deliver impactful actions and reporting
  • Shaping the future: Using education effectively to further diversity and inclusion
