IoD Yorkshire & North East - Shinkwin Commission Roundtable How can business harness diverse talent for success?
IoD Yorkshire & North East would like to invite you to attend this roundtable event to discuss the Commission and your initial comments and feedback.
On Friday 18th of March, the Institute of Directors announced the launch of a new Commission, ‘The future of inclusive business: harnessing diverse talent for success’, to examine the key barriers to the recruitment, retention, and progression of individuals from underrepresented groups, with specific reference to disability, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation.
The Commission is being led by Lord Shinkwin, who has made equality of opportunity his key focus since entering the House of Lords in 2015 and has lived experience of severe disability, and guided by a panel of eleven senior business leaders and experts. It will identify and promote business best practice in overcoming these barriers and in creating working environments in which all talent can thrive and contribute to business bottom-line and growth.
In addition to collecting responses through our Call for Evidence, we’re gathering evidence via these events with IoD members across the country, hosted by Alexandra Hall-Chen, Senior Policy Advisor at the Institute of Directors.
Please come prepared to share your thoughts, feedback and opinions.
Connect with other directors, develop yourself and influence the people that matter.
