Demystifying Diversity & Inclusion

Let’s get everyone on the same page. Diversity & Inclusion has commercial, societal and ethical significance, we frame the session by setting the scene on how society is changing and the importance of understanding how this topic affects us all; personally, in the workplace and beyond. Defining what diversity and inclusion means within that and exploring Intersectionality and privilege with relevant, contemporary examples. Following that, different types of discrimination, bias and the harmful impact of stereotypes. Understanding what we mean by Equality, Equity and Removal of Barriers and the 5G workforce. An overview of the anti-discrimination law will demystify protected characteristics and explain how to mitigate risk both as an employer and as individuals. The session will be rounded off with the benefits of diverse teams and our top tips for conscious inclusion.
