Tickets are £175+vat per person
Over 1,000 FMCG professionals will come together to connect, learn and inspire change in D&I practice across the grocery sector.
Tackling important and difficult topics, the unique format of the day is a product of grassroots passion and collaboration of over 35 of the biggest industry brands. Attendees will leave with enhanced knowledge and understanding of how to bring D&I to their workplace along with the drive to take action and enact change.
If you are currently creating a truly inclusive culture, wherever you are on the journey, this event will help and isn’t just for D&I professionals. Bring people from across the business to gain new understanding and come away with actions to help you meet your company objectives.
The morning kicks off with some personal stories from leaders across our industry and beyond. We’ll encourage everyone to step outside of their own experience and consider D&I from a different perspective, tackling some tricky discussion topics in an informed way.
The morning continues with a fireside chat during which Dame Sharon White reflects on her experiences of inclusion and diversity working across different organisations, each with their different cultures.
Be prepared to join the debate and share your views as we discuss whether language and labelling helps or hinders D&I progress.
We’ll navigate the topic of inclusive language and the tricky balancing act between terms intended to be more inclusive and respectful, and the lack of consensus that leaves some people feeling like they may inadvertently “say the wrong thing”.
For the middle section of the day, our delegates will split into three groups and attend the following agenda sessions on rotation. Each session provides an incredible opportunity to network, learn from what our 38 sponsors are doing in the D&I space and take away learnings that you can implement for yourself.
Return to the afternoon plenary full of motivation and ready to hear from people who have made change happen.
Three pioneers in D&I progress share their story and illustrate how we can make change happen, despite the challenges of culture and accessibility.
One of Britain’s greatest Paralympic athletes, we are honoured that Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson joins us to share her story of courage and determination, which led her to the title of Britain’s most successful wheelchair racer. Now, as a working peer, Tanni uses her experience and knowledge to discuss matters including Disability Rights, Welfare Reform, and of course, Sport.
We close the day reflecting on some of the key learnings that we’ve heard and encourage personal and organisational accountability to drive progress further, faster.
Join us in the Lioness Bar to network, make connections and keep the conversation flowing.
