Shared Learning

D&I in Grocery LIVE!

D&I in Grocery Live! unites the industry, at the largest D&I event in the grocery sector, to be collectively inspired and learn how to deliver measurable impact.

The event is attended by more than 1,600 colleagues across Partner and Non-Partner organisations, including Leaders, D&I Practitioners, Allies and Change Makers, who are all passionate about driving change within the grocery industry.

“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.”
