New Virtual Training (open to the public): The Fundamentals of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
This workshop has been set up in cooperation with but is open to anyone…
EDI is on the agenda of every organisation, so much so that there is an assumption that most people are intimately familiar with the topic. Naturally, then, it’s easy to feel that we should know more about it than we actually do.
This session is ideal for anyone who has questions about the basics of EDI, or wants further clarification on some of the key concepts and preconceptions of EDI.
In this session, we answer questions such as: What are microaggressions? If Unconscious Bias is so normal, why do we need to mitigate it? What’s the difference between Diversity, Inclusion, Equality, Equity and Belonging? What precisely is privilege?
We cover 10 key concepts – the fundamentals – of EDI, look at the 8 Inclusive Behaviours© that help us become more inclusive and take a closer look at the most impactful EDI initiatives.
By the end of the session, attendees will:
- be better versed on the subject of EDI
- better understand what gets in the way of being truly inclusive of everyone
- learn what initiatives really work to move the needle on Inclusion

Forbes in the Future of work
Each year since the pandemic, the world of work has significantly transformed, from remote work, to TikTok Gen Z trends of “lazy girl jobs,” and “quiet-quitting,” to global trends that have triggered mass coverage across news outlets and social media such as “The Great Resignation,” and “The Great Rebalancing.” What is the outlook for 2024 and how will these predictions impact our careers?

What Else Is New?
Driving Diversity: The Next 10 Years!
In the 10 years since Voice At The Table began, a lot has changed in EDI and we have moved with those changes. We have learned and grown.
Ten years ago, we kicked off with an event that brought together many supporters of the drive for greater Diversity. Now it’s time to celebrate what we’ve all learned and achieved since then and look to the future with a celebratory event.
Our EDI Celebration Event
On Thursday, 8th of February 2024, we will be hosting an exclusive EDI conference we call Driving Diversity: The Next 10 Years! at the fabulous Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London. 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 ten years.
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
- How to make the most of every generation represented on the team.
EDI Journey Milestone Awards
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.
Our celebration event is exclusively for our clients and partners, with attendees from a wide range of sectors such as life sciences, engineering, video games, data infrastructure, energy and finance.
Attendance at this event will be by invitation only (and free of charge).
If you would like to receive an invitation to celebrate with us, please let us know ASAP. Our capacity is restricted to 100 people, so once we reach capacity, the list of invitations will have to close.
