Diversity is not Inclusion - What is really holding women back in the workplace

Keynote Theatre
Diversity & Inclusion

No matter where (or who) you are in the corporate space, you want to make sure that diversity and inclusion are top of mind. Why? Because it's good for business.

Too often we forget that diversity and inclusion are pillars of wealth creation. Of course, they're important for the well being of women. This is a given. But DEI is important to EVERYONE because it makes us money. Research has shown that women have the potential to contribute £250 billion to the UK economy. And yet we're constantly fighting the gaps - the investment gap, the wealth gap, the pay gap, and the worry gap.

While there might be the presence of diversity (women and women of colour) in an organisation that doesn't necessarily mean there's inclusion.

In this interactive session, you'll access these key takeaways:
-A straightforward step-by-step framework on how to identify DEI gaps in your world (work and life)
-How to be a daily champion of inclusion in the smallest ways
-How to use DEI to maintain a healthy work/life balance
-Understanding that when you prioritise diversity and inclusion, you put yourself at the top of your to-do list
-The real dangers of not implementing DEI at a fundamental level (employee retention, burnout and profit)
