Webinar: D&I in 2022 - A cross-sector perspective

As we move in to 2022, the past year has presented a whole host of new challenges and opportunities for Diversity and Inclusion practitioners within organisations across the public, private and not for profit sector. From returning to office working, an increased spotlight on BLM, growing media focus on the safety of women and girls plus all the questions around wellbeing throughout the pandemic, there has been no shortage of headlines that have direct impactions for D&I within the workplace.

In this webinar, you will hear D&I experts from across the sectors discuss some of their key learnings from 2021, their plans for the year ahead, and what needs to happen going forward. It will be an opportunity to hear what practices and initiatives others have brought into place, what has worked (and what hasn’t), and get insight into the progress that has been made.
