Uncertainty around the impact of Covid-19 on BAME communities and the killing of George Floyd have highlighted the need to do more to eradicate racism and inequality. Join us to discuss the role of business in promoting diversity and inclusion.
Businesses have made great efforts to improve diversity and become more inclusive over the last decade. However, the coronavirus pandemic has understandably meant that firms’ ability to focus on this agenda is now limited. All businesses are challenged to demonstrate their commitment to diversity and inclusion through their actions. To play a key role in stamping out racial inequality and take action in the workplace so that everyone can thrive.
This event is kindly sponsored by Browne Jacobson and we are delighted to announce our guests speakers:
Caroline Green, Senior Partner, Browne Jacobson
Lauren Adams, HR Director, CBI
Questions for discussion:
How has the coronavirus pandemic impacted your business’ ability to focus on D&I?
Are you seeing any particular group being more affected than others because of the pandemic? If so, have you taken specific actions to mitigate this?
What steps have you introduced to guarantee your staff’s health and safety at work? Have you considered how returning to work impacts different groups in different ways?
What’s your approach to flexible working going forward? Are you going to adapt your policies to reflect new ways of working?
How can businesses ensure inclusivity while employees are WFH? And what’s managers’ role in administering it? How should employers ensure that performance reviews and appraisals are fair when employees are WFH?
What practical actions should business play in standing up to racism?
