This one day, in-person, conference is your chance to gain practical and insightful information from expert D&I practitioners through a series of key-note presentations, panel discussions and interactive workshops. Throughout the day you’ll also have the opportunity to expand your network and discuss what you’ve heard with peers.

By attending the various keynote presentations, panel discussions, and networking sessions, you will:

  • Hear first-hand experiences and gain practical and insightful information, enabling you to implement real change in your organisation
  • Discuss the current challenges faced by all organisations, allowing you to take away key learnings and prioritise next steps for D&I within your team
  • Have the opportunity to create and expand your networks by meeting with peers from a wide range of businesses

Our cross-sector approach will help you gain fresh perspectives from outside of your sector, inspire tangible solutions and provide you with practical tools to take back to your own organisation.

Join us next March and discover how to embed resilient and robust ED&I strategies which support the growth of your organisation and its people.
