Our Diversity & Inclusion Conference will be bringing together 250 practitioners from our 230+ members, spanning the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, as well as academic institutions. This year the conference will focus on common issues faced within three key areas: identity, ability and culture. 25+ experts from across Whitehall and industry will present evidence-based sessions, providing real experiences and valuable practical information that will equip individuals with the information and tools they need to make an impact in their own organisations.
