“No other event in the calendar pulls our industry together in this way; inspiring and challenging us all to do better in the areas of diversity & inclusion. None of us have the all the answers, but by sharing and learning from each other we can become more inclusive leaders and better nurture diversity in our organisations. If you’re passionate about driving diversity and inclusion, this event will help you reach your goal.”
