Driving Diversity: The Next 10 Years

Driving Diversity The Next 10 Years (8)

Join us at our special 10th anniversary EDI conference we call Driving Diversity: The Next 10 Years! During this interactive half-day gathering, we will share our main EDI reflections and lessons from this decade and reveal what it will take to lead the EDI transition over the next decade.

We will feature input from several of our inspiring clients, including panel discussions on the following topics:

  • How to engage volunteers and add value to the organisation;
  • How to take Diversity beyond gender; and
  • How to make the most of every generation represented on the team.

In addition to the exchange of knowledge, we will be celebrating a number of outstanding individuals for their drive and achievement in the EDI space. We will present each of them with an edi (pronounced ee-dee) award to recognise how they have gone above and beyond to drive Diversity in their organisation.

Join us also for networking drinks and canapes to close the session.

Attendance is by invitation only.
