Join us at this briefing where we will explore practical ways to promote inclusive behaviours in the workplace, looking particularly through the lens and via the means of reverse mentoring. The panel from across the private and public sector with speakers from Fujitsu and Westminster City Council will provide insight of embedding such initiatives, and talk about the benefits they can bring to leading and growing an inclusive workforce – from diverse, lived perspectives.
