25th - 26th June 2019 | London

Promoting diversity isn’t just the right thing to do, it also makes business sense. McKinsey estimates that bridging the gender gap in work would add £150bn to the UK economy by 2025. But gender equality is only part of the diversity agenda.

We recognise that an inclusive workplace – a culture that welcomes the differences of gender, sexuality, race, age, social background, physical and mental ability, and even differences of thought and experience – improves the performance of a team and, ultimately, a business’s results.

This two-day conference brings together the country’s top business leaders and diversity experts to share practical insights, best practice and strategy tips on building a more inclusive workplace. What can you do to draw on the widest talent pool? How do you attract and retain talent from different backgrounds and create an inclusive culture? What does inclusive leadership look like? We tackle these questions and more over two days of keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops and case studies.

Why do we need to talk about this?

  • 1 in 3 employers are less likely to hire a transgender person
  • Gender pay gap figures show 8 in 10 firms pay men more than women
  • In the UK, 1 in 4 people will have a mental health problem at some point
  • Companies with more diverse management teams create a 19% higher innovation revenue

What will you hear on the day?

  • ‘Speaking Out’ sessions: short TED Talks peppered throughout the conference giving you first-hand accounts of being excluded at work due to sexuality or mental health issues
  • Case studies on companies who can demonstrate the growth of their business through building an inclusive workplace
  • Panel discussions on recruitment, creating an inclusive culture, retention, different generations working together, labelling and identity
  • Workshops: inclusion hacks around unconscious bias and flexible working
