BLACK LIVES MATTER: DELIVERING MEANINGFUL CHANGE

In May, the tragic murder of George Floyd in the U.S. sparked both social and corporate responses across the world, including the UK. In the following weeks and months, businesses up and down the country publicly committed to do more to create diverse and inclusive workplaces, especially for their Black employees. While there is a new and welcome urgency on the need for better representation in business, the challenge will be to ensure this momentum is sustained and leads to meaningful change.

Join Dame Carolyn Fairbairn (Director-General, CBI), Justine Lutterodt (Director, Centre for Synchronous Leadership), Raj Tulsiani (CEO & Co-Founder, Green Park), and Professor Udy Archibong (Professor of Diversity, University of Bradford) to discuss:

  • Reflections on business’s response to this year’s Black Lives Matter protests
  • Creating workplace cultures that are comfortable talking about race and ethnicity
  • Developing strategies to improve representation throughout all levels of business, including management and executive leadership; and setting impactful targets that lead to consistent action and hold leaders to account
  • Building the talent pipeline in a way that delivers opportunities for individuals from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups.

Participants:

  • Dame Carolyn Fairbairn, Director-General, CBI
  • Justine Lutterodt, Director, Centre for Synchronous Leadership
  • Raj Tulsiani, CEO & Co-Founder, Green Park
  • Professor Udy Archibong, Professor of Diversity, University of Bradford
  • Ceri Thomas, Editor and Partner, Tortoise Media (chair)

​Replacing the Daily Coronavirus Webinars, our new bi-weekly broadcast, CBI @10am will help support you through the next phase, giving you expert insight and intelligence to continue adapting, and providing the guidance you need to restart and boost your business, and build resilience for the new normal.
