PEOPLE AND SKILLS NETWORK (SOUTH WEST) ON DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION IN A POST-PANDEMIC WORLD

The pandemic has impacted us all, but the severity of the impact varies across society with women, young workers, and ethnic minorities being hit the hardest. At the same time, Diversity and Inclusion has remained high on the business agenda throughout the crisis, with two-thirds of organisations planning to increase their D&I activities in the two-to-three years beyond 2021.

But companies now also have a unique opportunity to build back better and to reimagine diversity and inclusion practices, whilst looking ahead to what can be achieved in the next two to five years.

By drawing on good practices that have proven to boost diversity and inclusion in the past, and key learnings from the business response to COVID-19, the aim of this session is to enable businesses to map out solutions for building a more inclusive economy and a better society as we come out of the ongoing health and economic crisis. It is also an opportunity to reflect on key ambitions that organisations want to achieve on diversity and inclusion in the medium to long-term.

In this session we would like to explore the following questions with members:

  • Do you think the pandemic presents an opportunity or a challenge to your diversity and inclusion agenda?
  • Has your organisation continued to report on gender/ethnicity pay gaps?
  • Has your business implemented any new policies to increase diversity and inclusion in response to COVID-19?
  • What are your ambitions and diversity and inclusion objectives in the next two to five years?
  • What can the government and the CBI do to support your D&I ambitions?

You’ll particularly benefit from this event if you are:

  • Chief of People
  • Head of HR
  • HR Director
  • Director of People/Talent
  • Diversity and Inclusion Lead
