Diversity and Inclusion has been a hotter topic than ever this year, largely triggered by the murder of George Floyd in May and the subsequent swelling of the Black Lives Matter movement. Companies large and small have been prompted to examine the work they themselves are doing around tackling racism and developing truly inclusive and welcoming workplaces - with mixed results.
This event will bring together representatives from a range of Birmingham-based companies to share and discuss their own learnings around building a diverse and inclusive culture, and how this has impacted their business. We'll have a frank and honest conversation about what's worked, what hasn't, and how far we have left to go, with the aim of sharing knowledge that will empower all attendees to action change in their own team or organisation.
Speakers and panel members will include individuals from startups right through to corporate enterprises, so attendees can learn from companies they can relate to.
