Diversity and Inclusion Conference 2019

The 2nd annual Diversity and Inclusion Conference was one of the most widely attended Symposium conferences in 2018. Back for a second year, we are delighted to announce a first look at the programme for 2019.

Promoting and supporting diversity in the workplace is an important aspect of good people management – it’s about valuing everyone in the organisation as an individual. However, to reap the benefits of a diverse workforce it’s vital to have an inclusive environment where everyone feels able to participate and achieve their potential.
While UK legislation – covering age, disability, race, religion, gender and sexual orientation among others – sets minimum standards, an effective diversity and inclusion strategy goes beyond legal compliance and seeks to add value to an organisation, contributing to employee well-being and engagement.

This conference will cover a wide range of topics including:

  • How inclusion differs from diversity
  • The business benefits of a diverse workforce
  • What happens when diversity needs compete or even oppose each other?
  • Current legal situations
  • Tackling unconscious bias
  • Inclusion in multi-national organisations
  • How to create a culture of inclusiveness and promote diversity
  • Reviewing the current progress of the Gender Pay Gap Reporting legislation
  • And more!
