Revolutionising inclusion & diversity to enhance employee well-being, increase profitability, and create a more inclusive society

Building on the success of our previous diversity and inclusion events across Australia and New Zealand, the Workforce Inclusion & Diversity Conference returns in 2020

 
Conference: 17 & 18 November 2020 | Sydney 
 
Diversity and inclusion initiatives have a history of being dismissed as “tick a box” measures. Now, a pulse survey has found that 27 percent of surveyed D&I leaders say their organisation has halted D&I initiatives due to the pandemic. 
 
The counterbalance to this is recent social justice movements that have emphasised the potential of well-designed D&I to improve the upwards social mobility of minorities and disenfranchised groups. So how can your organisation achieve real D&I benefits for staff in this age of scarce resources?
 
The 5th Annual Workforce Inclusion & Diversity Conference, returning to Sydney from the 17-18th November, will bring together experts that can help you build an impactful D&I strategy within your organisation. This year, the conference will place special emphasis on ways that the Black Lives Matter movements and COVID-19 have impacted conversations around D&I.
 
Join us as we bring together CEOs, Heads of HR, and Heads of Inclusion and Diversity to discuss how D&I can empower your people and add value to your bottom line by:
  • Aligning diversity and inclusion with organisational outcomes to drive business recovery  
  • Moving beyond traditional diversity metrics and towards a much greater focus on genuine inclusion
  • Learning from and implementing the latest innovations in D&I
This is a special opportunity to network and share information with like-minded professionals so that you can help your organisation be the best it can be.
Attend to hear several industry-leading keynote speakers, learn from successful case studies, and benefit from our interactive CEO panel, where leaders will demonstrate diversity in leadership.
