Building diverse workplaces
New Street Consulting Group invited equality, diversity and inclusion leaders from various industries to share their experiences on setting up and developing an in-house D&I function.
They discussed potential pitfalls and necessary steps at every maturity level at our recent webinar, now available to view on-demand.
This cross-sector panel discussion will interest you if you are:
- a HR director wanting to benchmark your D&I maturity against other organisations
- a D&I leader seeking practical hints & tips
- a CEO who only knows D&I as a regulatory or HR concern
- a talent acquisition expert looking to influence c-suite talent strategies
- a technical leader struggling to build diverse teams
- a commercial leader looking to understand how your peers support neurodiverse team members
- or if you have any questions about the practical steps you can take to build a more diverse workplace.
Our panelists shared their experiences on setting up and developing strategies from the ground up, focussing on all levels of maturity.
