Is your workplace diverse? And is it inclusive?

While many businesses may be able to answer the first question, the second can cause a bit of confusion. Isn't it just the same question rephrased?

Although the two terms are often used interchangeably, diversity and inclusion (D&I) are very distinct – yet critical – aspects of a healthy workforce. Gone are the days when D&I strategies were a ‘nice to have’; today, they’re an essential for any business with strong growth ambitions.

In this round table discussion led by Michaela Reaney, The Opportunity Group, we’ll explore the differences between D&I in more detail. We’ll focus on what D&I stands for, promoting it within your business, why D&I matters and getting started on creating a positive and inclusive culture. Entrepreneurs with experience in the topic are also invited to come along and share their advice too.

Our round tables are shaped by your views and experience, so while we hope to cover the topics above, we may discuss other subjects related to D&I during the session.
