About this Event

WEDS Foundations of D&I for Startups

Following our launch earlier this year, WEDS is back with a series of events which will take us beyond discussing D&I to actively working on solutions by collating and creating resources for startups.

Throughout the series we'll focus on different aspects on D&I from recruiting, to retaining, office culture to onboarding, all aligned to the WEDS Foundations of D&I for Startups.

The vision for the WEDS network is to create and maintain a set of best practices which are practical for startups to implement and be a forum for peer-led support in this area.

Event 1: Growing your Team - Hiring

Typical workshop agenda (details TBD):

  • Speakers share what they tried and what worked and didn’t in the foundational area

  • We all break into groups, with speakers and facilitators on hand to help, to co-create a list of resources, a step-by-step guide to following best practice (we expect there’ll be levels here like “basic”, “better”, “best”) and templates/examples for any specific artefacts we’ve identified (e.g. example job spec template)

  • Regroup to share findings and discuss challenges with speakers on hand for Q&A

  • WEDS team take the raw output and produce a “resource pack”

Accessibility & Inclusion

  • All attendees will need to report to the reception area and they will be given a visitor pass and escorted to the event.
  • Attendees will be provided with name badges including their pronouns (you will be asked for yours during sign-up).
  • The venue and toilets are wheelchair accessible.
  • Gender-neutral toilets will be available.
  • We will ensure all speakers use microphones so that they are audible to all.
