Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
More than 80% of CEOs whose organisations have a diversity and inclusion strategy believe it has enhanced business performance1
The benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace are well documented. Many organisations now recognise the need to make it a priority and yet “action is not guided by clear knowledge of what works, and under what conditions”2
Jessica Forte will be leading this session, sharing some great examples of how to approach increasing diversity and our thinking on how to tackle D&I in a way that works for your organisation.
When you’re more likely to be the boss of a FTSE 100 company if you’re called Dave than if you are a woman3, it’s clear there is a great deal to be done. We look forward to making progress on this with you.
Jessica directs and delivers a variety of behaviour change campaigns, transformational change projects and sustainable business projects with a cross sector of clients. She led on the enormously successful Tennis Is campaign for the Lawn Tennis Association that changed behaviour and increased tennis participation in pilot areas by 24% and, more recently, with various water companies, helping them to engage their customers more effectively on sustainable water usage. Jessica has worked on a number of projects to increase diversity, including with Ricoh UK at the start of its diversity journey, helping to create a more inclusive culture, and a working environment which values, embraces and celebrates diversity in the workplace.
The Discovery Session, which is free of charge, will be held in central London from 8.30 to 10.30am on Thursday, 18th October. Tea/coffee will be available from 8.30am, with a prompt start at 9am.
