Power of Diversity & Inclusion

Date – Tuesday 5th November 2019

Venue – ARK Central, 84 Spencer Street, Birmingham, B18 6DS

Time – 9.30am – 12.30pm 

Overview

We tend to assume that money is the biggest motivator for employees – that if you pay your employees more, then they will work more. Now we know that money is actually the hygienic factor. You have to pay them enough, but there are different things that motivate people for example, the need to feel valued and respected in the workplace. This signifies the importance of placing equality, diversity and inclusion at the core of organisational culture.

Why attend?

This workshop will provide a quick overview of the business case for Diversity but given that most companies have bought into the ‘why’, the primary focus of the workshop will be on the ‘how’. How do we move towards data-driven decision-making?? How do we create more inclusive teams that can flourish and reach their full potential? What are the enablers and blockers to promoting and embedding a diverse and inclusive culture? How do we apply rigour and make meaningful change happen?

You will learn:

This ‘Power of Diversity & Inclusion’ workshop will cover the following areas:

  • Benefits of diversity and inclusion in the workplace
  • Define what ‘good’ looks like in terms of successful outcomes and best practice
  • Provide learnings to tackle the challenges of diversity and inclusion
  • Discuss, share and explore views on a range of diversity and inclusion scenarios

Who is this for?

Anyone, responsible for driving diversity and inclusion in the workplace who would like to be better equipped to deal with the opportunities and challenges they are currently facing.
