SAVE THE DATE: Valuing diversity and building bridges
A truly purpose-led organisation is a diverse organisation.

Join us on Wednesday 6th October from 5-6 pm for our panel event – Valuing diversity and building bridges – hosted by Dee Corrigan.

For diverse workplaces to thrive, we need to be open to hearing, listening to and inviting many different points of view; and creating space for dialogue on topics that can be very emotive and challenging. So, how do we have uncomfortable conversations at work, and why is this important in becoming a purpose-led business?

Dee will be joined by three panellists, Samuel Okafor (Executive Director, Customer Lifecycle Origination Lead in the Affluent leadership team and Co-lead Racial Equality Taskforce at NatWest), Alison Taylor (Executive Director at Ethical Systems and Adjunct Professor at NYU Stern) and Nick Dalton (Consultant and former E.V.P. H.R. at Unilever) to discuss their experiences and share practical advice for others, before opening the discussion to attendees.

Oct 6, 2021 05:00 PM in London
