We Make Change Happen: Fostering Diversity And Inclusion
7th November 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Diverse teams and organisations can generate innovative ideas and enhance business performance. However, a diverse organisation also needs to be inclusive to maximise that potential. Role models can play, in this sense, a crucial role on fostering diversity and inclusion as well as attracting, retaining and developing talented people.
On this event we will explore what it means to be an LGBT+ role model and the ways that everyone can step up as a role model to create inclusive workplaces.

- Amanda McKay: Balfour Beatty Major Projects Quality Director
- Tag Warner: Gay Times Commercial Director
