Diversifying our membership

Join us in discussion with one of our Chartered Directors and our Senior Policy Advisor as part of our Chartered Director Event Series.
This event has been cancelled.

This virtual session will be hosted and facilitated by a chartered director and will explore ideas for what we can do in our businesses and as the IoD. A great opportunity to hear from IoD Senior Policy Advisor, Alex-Hall-Chen who will be speaking and available for Q&A during the event.

A conversation within this group’s meetings to date, and of course elsewhere, is how we make sure that the CDir community is reflective of the demographic of the IoD membership - which isn’t as diverse as it could or should be, but is certainly improving.

This event is open to ALL IoD Chartered Directors, be it from the South West or other regions and nations, together with any IoD Members who are on their journey to CDir and have completed up to two modules of the Certificate in Company Direction or Diploma. If you are unable to join us on this occasion do book on to the next event in our Chartered Director event series both face to face and online - see full event listing here
