Webinar seminar event: Introduction to Workplace Diversity & Inclusion Date 29 September 2016
Time 10.00 - 11.00
Location This Session will be held as a Webinar
The modern workforce is more diverse than ever and with current projections, this diversity is set to increase. Consider the following trends:
Over the last 10 years the UK has witnessed a significant rise in immigration with communities from Eastern Europe and Africa entering the workforce
More women than men are graduating from university, increasing the female pipeline
People are living longer and with the removal of the default retirement age, employers will be expected to consider how they include and accommodate older workers
Other employees, such as those from a religious background and LGBT expect to work in environments where they are respected for what they do inside work, not who others think they are outside of work
So we know that our workforces are increasing in diversity. We also know that an inclusive work culture is one where individuals can be themselves and where inclusive employers harness and nurture their diverse talent. But a question remains: Is this increase in diversity leading to an increase in inclusive working practices?
This question will form the basis of our free Webinar, led by Alaba Okuyiga. Drawing on the latest research, case studies and scenarios from leading employers the webinar will also explore:
Diversity & Inclusion: What’s the difference?
The role of unconscious bias and how majority and minority groups really interact, and the consequences for talent engagement, retention and business growth
The role of staff and management behaviours in creating exclusive / inclusive work environments
We will also provide you with some practical tips on how to harness and motivate your people and how to create an inclusive work culture.

Head of HR, HR Directors & Managers, L&D/OD Managers, Diversity Practitioners, Business Managers & Sponsors, Network leads.
