Events

In these open events, we bring people together to listen to each other and to learn. We collaborate with international cutting-edge experts who share with us their experience and learnings with a 15-minute keynote talk about the very latest thinking, aspirations and solutions that have global importance in the D&I sector.

What makes this a really different experience is we then create a space for our delegates to delve into the issues around the topic, sharing their experiences along the way.

If you are someone who wants to know or share what is happening at grassroots level, or you are already a leader or influencer in this field, we would love to hear from you. We ask everyone who books a place to contribute something and we give a portion of the proceeds to a different selected charity for each event.

Please take a look at the topics, speakers and details of our monthly events below and get in touch if you would like further information.
