IoD East Midlands - Unlocking Diversity in the Workplace

14 Mar 2019
Notts County Football Club, Nottingham

Hosted by IoD Ambassador for Diversity, Carole Harvey

Why would you pick a team from only half the squad? Join Carole Harvey, Ambassador for Diversity for the IoD and Vistage Chair at Notts County for some practical guidance on creating  more diverse teams in your organisation.
Plus, to continue the celebration of International Women’s day on 8th March we will hear an inspiring story from Jayne Mayled MD of Creative Agency TrueStory and founder of White Hot Hair.

The moral and financial case for Diversity and Inclusion is clear, businesses with diverse boards in terms of gender, age, race and other criteria perform better, often significantly better, than their peers so why is change not happening faster? We will explore the 5 things businesses can do now to unlock the potential of their whole workforce.
