Without the right understanding, creating a workplace environment that is the definition of equality, diversity and inclusion is a challenge. Organisations that want to attract and retain the best diverse staff, require workplace leaders who can successfully meet the challenge head-on. Leaders who can successfully deliver an inclusive workplace culture - one that engages and resonates with employees from all backgrounds - will help talent to flourish and will benefit from the commercial success that diversity brings to an organisation.
In support of LGBT+ equality, diversity and inclusion and in celebration of LGBT+ Pride, BAME Recruitment are please to host a panel discussion on "What makes a great LGBT+ inclusive leader?"
This event will give attendees the opportunity to hear from a diverse-range of LGBT+ speakers plus an ally who has hands-on experience of diversity and inclusion leadership. Speakers will discuss LGBT+ inclusion best practices and will give insight into "What makes a great LGBT+ inclusive leader?"
The topics covered will be:
- Diversity within the LGBT+ community and how it translates into the workplace environment.
- How allies can help LGBT+ people in the workplace?
- Diversity and inclusion, leading the change.
Timings on the night:
6pm - 6:30pm - drinks and networking
