Events

In 2020 we ran 13 online Facilitated Dialogues. These were deep-dive events that helped D&I professionals in particular navigate more effectively the changing world each person found themselves in.

We enter 2021 with continuing uncertainty so we have designed a new series of dialogues, each focused on a particular aspect of inclusion and diversity. We're inviting expert speakers to give us of their experience and then inviting delegates to join in a dialogue to delve more deeply into the topic.

We have much we can learn from each other when it comes to preparing the way forward. Take a look at topics, speakers and details of each monthly event below.

Taking the Fear out of Disability

Why is there so much fear around disability? And what is the impact for both disabled and non-disabled people? Jane Hatton, CEO of Evenbreak explores the topic with us.

If we could reduce this fear, what effect could that have on employers and their employees? How might that impact on disabled people and their chances of securing worthwhile employment?

Jane Hatton is a disabled social entrepreneur, TEDx Speaker and author. She founded the award-winning social enterprise Evenbreak in 2011. She is an expert in the field and will explore the various elements of this touchy, sensitive and rarely spoken about subject. Attendees will then have an opportunity to reflect together on what has arisen for them in hearing her speak.

The benefits have been defined, explained and proven. It's time to take the actions necessary to reap these benefits. So how do you design your organisation for inclusion? Suzie Lewis, CEO of Transform for Value gives us a roadmap.

We will be exploring what a system designed for inclusion looks and feels like and what the foundational elements are.

What does it take to deliberately nudge the organisational culture, processes and ways of working to create a more inclusive environment, more inclusive leadership and what can this mean for the employee experience, their wellbeing as well as business performance?
