Symposium - Diversity for business

Join us at Workz for an afternoon focusing on the untapped potential of diversity.

Studies show what we intuitively know - teams and organisations perform better when they are made up of different types of people, with differing approaches, who are able to bring their fullest and most authentic selves to work.

In these fast-changing times, companies need to make sure they get the best people and get the most out of their (best) people. One way of doing that, is to hire a diverse range of people and to focus on developing all talents regardless of gender, ethnicity, culture etc.  Another way is to create a culture, and systems approach, that enables and encourages people to act in a fully diverse manner.

It sounds great – but how is it achieved?

What does it take and how do organisations need to change, in order to gain the full potential of a diverse approach to leadership, recruitment and strategy? What are the internal barriers to creating a diverse team and leading it? How can the full potential and value of both organisation and people be released through diversity?  

To discuss this, we have invited three experts, who will speak through the lens of gender diversity:
